- A short note on HISCLASS
Recently a social class scheme (HISCLASS) based on HISCO has been made by Marco H.D. van Leeuwen and Ineke Maas. You can use the full scheme, with 12 social classes, or the condensed version with 7 classes as e.g. in the 2005 supplement on social homogamy of the International Review of Social History. This document provides some background information on the HISCLASS scheme.
