Summary

Summary

The latest revision of the Standard Occupational Classification Manual covers all occupations in which work is performed for pay or profit. Updated for the first time since 1980, this revision will maximize the usefulness of information collected by federal agencies who work with occupational data. Now, data users will be able to compare essential labor, business, and occupational information from a wide range of federal agencies. Occupations are classified based on the work performed, and on the required skills, education, training, and credentials for each one. All of the occupations in this structure are classified at four levels of aggregation to suit the needs of various data users. Each occupation is given a unique six-digit code that not only identifies the occupation, but the four levels of aggregation as well.
