Standard Occupational Classification

Response to Comment on 2010 SOC:
Docket Number 08-0202

Docket No. 08-0202 raised a question concerning the coding of Registered Nurses who practice as midwives, but are not trained as 29-1161 Nurse Midwives. The SOCPC determined these individuals would be classified in 29-1161 Nurse Midwives. Classification Principle 2 states that occupations are classified based on work performed. Therefore if the work performed is that of a Nurse Midwife, the workers should be classified in the same occupation.
