Standard Occupational Classification

Response to Comment on 2010 SOC:
Docket Number 08-0012

Docket No. 08-0012 requested the SOCPC provide information on whether changes in titles and codes in the 2010 SOC or future classification systems stem from either : (1) changes in classification principles and coding guidelines, or (2) actual changes in the nature or organization of work activities being performed in the economy.

The SOCPC concluded that changes to the 2010 SOC structure did not stem from changes to the 2000 SOC Principles. The 2000 SOC Principles were edited for clarification only. Therefore, all of the substantive structural changes made were based on actual changes in the nature or organization of work activities being performed in the economy.
