In this paper we examine new empirical evidence on the coherence and magnitude of the main classes in the Goldthorpe class schema. Particular attention is paid to issues that have recently been a source of academic dispute: the coherence and size of the service class and the distinction between the service class and intermediate classes. Using recently available British data collected by the Office for National Statistics we examine: 1. the extent to which measures of class-relevant job characteristics are empirically discriminated by the categories of the schema, 2. the structure of a contract type dimension of employment relations conceived of as a categorical latent variable, and 3. the association between this latent variable and both the Goldthorpe class schema and a related measure socio-economic group (SEG).
