 Additional Information

Notes

The Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) coding structure is now used in place of the previously utilized Occupational Employment Statistics (OES) coding system. This means that many of the occupational titles are different than before, but it also means that there will be more up-to-date occupational titles included such as different levels of computer programmers and software engineers.

More information on the SOC taxonomy is available at the following Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Web sites: http://stats.bls.gov/soc/socguide.htm. You may also call our toll-free number at 1-866-ONE-SRCE (1-866-663-7723) for assistance.
