Standard Occupational Classification

Response to Comment on 2010 SOC:
Docket Number 08-0292

Docket No. 08-0292 requested a new detailed occupation for "Genetic Counselors." The SOCPC accepted this recommendation because the work that Genetic Counselors perform is sufficiently distinct from the work of other occupations. Although employment is low, Genetic Counselors are concentrated in certain industries, reducing concerns regarding collectability. The SOCPC recommends establishing a new code for this occupation, 29-9092.
