The CIP_MFS theoretical concordance table appearing in Appendix O shows the definitional relationship between each six-digit class of the Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP [Canada 2000]) and each detailed class of the Major Field of Study (MFS) Classification. The concordance is 'theoretical' or unweighted. A 'theoretical' concordance allows users to see the relationships between the two classes of systems based on definitional aspects of each system. A 'weighted' or 'empirical' concordance includes relationships that are based on distributional aspects of the detailed levels of the classes.
