Statistical code lists are structural metadata on statistical concepts which are in general used to describe dimensions in data management. For multi-dimensional tables on the Eurostat webpage, in general several of these code lists are used. When appropriate, these lists are based on official statistical classifications, such as Nace Rev. 2 and ISCO or other code lists related to sex, age, time, working status, etc. In total, around 500 code lists exist in the Reference database.
