Occupational structure is often referred to as aggregate distribution of occupations in society, classified according to skill level, economic function, or social status. The word occupation is often related to industry. Therefore, the classification of occupation (occupational structure) of population is also known as industrial classification of population. There are different types of economic activities in all over the world which are different by types and quantity. It is not easy to merge all of them into same category. Therefore, United Nations has made a standard of the occupational structure at the global level. Many countries provide the occupational data to the United Nations according to this standard, although these countries might use some other standard for their own country. The industrial classification of India also follows the same but with some necessary modifications depending upon the regional context. Using the same classification, the paper tries to classify the occupational structure of Rudraprayag district in Uttarakhand. Since the region is predominantly dependent upon primary activities especially agriculture and allied activities, engagement of large section f population in this sector was observed, however with the constant socio economic changes the proportion of population share in the primary activities have been constantly declining. Improved access to education and growing dominance of the service sector have diverted the occupational engagement especially millennial population from primary directly to tertiary sector specifically. The occupational engagement in the secondary sector was observed to be least in the region
