Knowledge Workers and Knowledge Work

This report aims to give a more comprehensive portrait of work and the workforce in the knowledge economy. It is based on a survey that asked people what they actually do at work and how often they perform particular tasks. The results of the survey have been used to assess the level of 'cognitive complexity' or knowledge content of different jobs.

Amongst other things, the report highlights how knowledge work cannot be adequately described simply by looking at job titles or education levels, and that current job titles understate the knowledge content of jobs within some sectors.
