AGENCY:

Executive Office of the President, Office of Management and Budget.

ACTION:

Notice of Standard Occupational Classification Policy Committee; Recommendations to OMB and Solicitation of Comments.

SUMMARY:

Under the authority of the Budget and Accounting Procedures Act of 1950 (31 U.S.C. 1104(d)) and the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3504(e)), the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is seeking public comment on the Standard Occupational Classification Policy Committee's (SOCPC) recommendations presented in this notice for revising the 2000 Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) for 2010.

The SOC is designed to reflect the current occupational structure of the United States; it classifies all occupations in which work is performed for pay or profit. The SOC covers all jobs in the national economy, including occupations in the public, private, and military sectors. All Federal agencies that publish occupational data are required to use the SOC; State and local government agencies are strongly encouraged to use this national system to promote a common language for categorizing and analyzing occupations.

In a prior Federal Register notice (71 FR 28536, May 16, 2006), OMB and the SOCPC requested comments on: (1) The Standard Occupational Classification principles, (2) corrections to the 2000 SOC Manual, (3) the intention to retain the current SOC Major Group structure, (4) changes to the existing detailed occupations, and (5) new detailed occupations to be added to the revised 2010 SOC.

The classification principles, coding guidelines, and occupations recommended in this notice reflect the comments received in response to the May 16, 2006, notice and represent the SOCPC's final recommendations to OMB. OMB, in consultation with the SOCPC, will consider comments in response to this notice in making its final decisions for the 2010 SOC revision and will publish its decisions in the Federal Register. The SOCPC will then finish preparing the 2010 Standard Occupational Classification Manual for publication, including finalizing occupational definitions, assigning associated job titles, and developing a crosswalk to the 2000 SOC.

Appendices: This notice includes three appendices in the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section below. Appendix A presents the SOCPC's recommended SOC Classification Principles and SOC Coding Guidelines. Appendix B provides a crosswalk between the occupation codes in the 2000 SOC and the recommended revised codes for the 2010 SOC. Appendix C provides a crosswalk between the recommended revised codes for the 2010 SOC and the 2000 SOC.

Request for Comments: In addition to general comments on the SOCPC's recommendations, OMB welcomes comments specifically addressing: (1) The SOC Classification Principles and SOC Coding Guidelines recommended by the SOCPC (Appendix A); (2) their recommended changes to titles and codes of occupations from the 2000 SOC (Appendix B); (3) the SOCPC's recommended changes to the hierarchical structure of the SOC, including changes to major, minor, broad, and detailed occupation groups (Appendix C); and (4) the titles, placement, and codes of new occupations that the SOCPC is recommending be added in the revised 2010 SOC (Appendix C). All comments submitted in response to this notice may be made available to the public, including by posting them on OMB's Web site.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History of the 2000 SOC Revision

The 2000 Standard Occupational Classification (SOC), which replaced the 1980 SOC, was developed in response to a growing need for a universal occupational classification system. Such a classification system allows government agencies and private industry to produce comparable data. Users of occupational data include government program managers, industrial and labor relations practitioners, job seekers, employers wishing to set salary scales or locate an establishment, academic and business researchers, and educational institutions—including teachers, guidance counselors, and students exploring careers and identifying career education and training alternatives.

In 1994, the Office of Management and Budget formed the SOC Revision Policy Committee (SOCRPC) with members from the Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics and Employment and Training Administration, the Department of Commerce's Census Bureau, the Department of Defense's Defense Manpower Data Center, the National Science Foundation, the National Occupational Information Coordinating Committee, the Office of Personnel Management, and the Office of Management and Budget , as well as participants from the Departments of Agriculture, Health and Human Services, and Transportation, and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The 2000 SOC is the result of a cooperative effort by the major Federal agencies that use occupational classification systems to maximize the Start Printed Page 29931usefulness of occupational information collected by the Federal Government and is the result of four years of research by the SOCRPC and work groups composed of members from more than fifteen government agencies.

The SOCRPC was charged with identifying the major statistical uses of occupational classifications and creating a classification system that reflected the current occupational structure in the United States. The SOCRPC used the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Occupational Employment Statistics (OES) classification system as the starting point for the new SOC framework.

In carrying out this charge, OMB and the committee issued several Federal Register notices. Based on comments in response to these notices, the SOCRPC and OMB developed and published the 2000 Standard Occupational Classification Manual and established the Standard Occupational Classification Policy Committee (SOCPC) to monitor the implementation of the new SOC and carry out periodic revisions.

The 2010 SOC Revision

In 2005, the Office of Management and Budget met with the Standard Occupational Classification Policy Committee (SOCPC) to plan for the 2010 SOC revision. The SOCPC includes representatives from the Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics and Employment and Training Administration, the Department of Commerce's Census Bureau, the Department of Defense's Defense Manpower Data Center, the Department of Education, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the National Science Foundation, the Office of Personnel Management, and, ex officio, the Office of Management and Budget.

To initiate the formal 2010 SOC revision process, OMB and the SOCPC requested public comment in a May 16, 2006, Federal Register notice (71 FR 28536) on: (1) The Standard Occupational Classification principles, (2) corrections to the 2000 SOC Manual, (3) the intention to retain the current SOC Major Group structure, (4) changes to the existing detailed occupations, and (5) new detailed occupations to be added to the revised 2010 SOC.

To carry out the bulk of the revision effort, the committee created six work groups to examine occupations in the following major groups: Management, Professional, and Related Occupations (codes 11-29-0000); Service Occupations (codes 31-39-0000); Sales and Office Occupations (codes 41-43-0000); Natural Resources, Construction, and Maintenance Occupations (codes 45-49-0000); Production, Transportation, and Material Moving Occupations (codes 51-53-0000) and Military Specific Occupations (code 55-0000).

The work groups were charged with reviewing comments received in response to the May 16, 2006, Federal Register notice and providing recommendations to the SOCPC. Guided by the classification principles, the SOCPC reviewed the recommendations from the workgroups and reached decisions by consensus. This Federal Register notice presents the final recommendations of the SOCPC to OMB for the 2010 SOC revision and requests public comment on those recommendations.

SOCPC Recommended Changes

The SOCPC received and reviewed hundreds of comments in response to the May 16, 2006, Federal Register notice. The SOCPC has restructured the SOC Classification Principles by revising them and adding a new section on SOC Coding Guidelines in response to some of these comments; please see Appendix A for the results of these recommended changes together with an outline of their motivation. In response to other comments, the SOCPC created new occupations, revised occupational titles, and made changes to the structure and placement of individual occupations. Appendices B and C show these recommended revisions.

In addition to general comments on the SOCPC's recommendations, OMB welcomes comments specifically addressing: (1) The SOC Classification Principles and SOC Coding Guidelines recommended by the SOCPC (Appendix A); (2) their recommended changes to titles and codes of occupations from the 2000 SOC (Appendix B); (3) the SOCPC's recommended changes to the hierarchical structure of the SOC, including changes to major, minor, broad, and detailed occupation groups (Appendix C); and (4) the titles, placement, and codes of new occupations that the SOCPC is recommending be added in the revised 2010 SOC (Appendix C).

OMB, in consultation with the SOCPC, will consider comments in response to this notice in making its final decisions for the 2010 SOC revision and will publish its decisions in the Federal Register. The SOCPC will then finish preparing the 2010 Standard Occupational Classification Manual for publication, including finalizing occupational definitions, assigning associated job titles, and developing a crosswalk to the 2000 SOC.

Appendix A: Classification Principles and Coding Guidelines

In reviewing comments on the 2000 SOC Classification Principles, members of the SOCPC noted that some of the principles were actually guidelines intended to assist data coders and users in consistently assigning SOC codes and titles to survey responses and in other coding activities. Consequently, the SOCPC recommends restructuring the SOC Classification Principles by revising them and extracting the guideline elements to form a new set of SOC Coding Guidelines. Aside from this restructuring, the substantive changes recommended by the SOCPC include the removal of credentials from the list of criteria in Principle 2 and the development of a new principle on collectability presented as Principle 8.

The removal of credentials as a basis of classification was motivated by the instability in classification resulting from the difficulty of obtaining accurate, recent information on current credential requirements and certification status of incumbents as well as the lack of uniformity across the various State and local jurisdictions on the credentials they require. This variation in requirements and credential information prevents consistent occupational classification across data related to various jurisdictions, establishments, and occupations.

The recommendation to include a collectability principle was motivated by the agencies' experience with the 2000 SOC in which they found that some of the 2000 SOC occupations either could not be collected consistently or, once collected, could not be reported because of potential disclosure of confidential statistical information. This inability to collect consistently or to publish certain occupations needlessly imposed collection burden on respondents, used Federal data collection resources inefficiently, and undermined the consistency and accuracy of occupational data.

The SOCPC's recommended SOC Classification Principles and SOC Coding Guidelines are shown below.

SOC Classification Principles

The SOC Classification Principles form the basis on which the SOC system is structured.

1. The SOC Classification covers all occupations in which work is performed for pay or profit, including work performed in family-operated enterprises by family members who are not directly compensated. It excludes occupations unique to volunteers. Each occupation is assigned to only one occupational category at the lowest level of the classification.

2. Occupations are classified based on work performed and, in some cases, on the skills, education, and/or training needed to perform the work at a competent level. Start Printed Page 29932

3. Workers primarily engaged in planning and directing are classified in management occupations in Major Group 11-0000.

4. Supervisors of workers in Major Groups 13-0000 through 29-0000 usually have work experience and perform activities similar to those of the workers they supervise, and therefore are classified with the workers they supervise.

5. Workers in Major Groups 33-0000 through 53-0000 whose primary duty is supervising are classified in the appropriate first-line supervisor/manager category because their work activities are distinct from those of the workers they supervise.

6. Apprentices and trainees are classified with the occupations for which they are being trained, while helpers and aides are classified separately because they are not in training for the occupation they are helping.

7. If an occupation is not included as a distinct detailed occupation in the structure, it is classified in an appropriate “All Other,” or residual, occupation. “All Other” occupations are placed in the structure when it is determined that the detailed occupations comprising a broad occupation group do not account for all of the workers in the group. These occupations appear as the last occupation in the group with a code ending in “9” and are identified in their title by having “All Other” appear at the end.

8. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and the U.S. Census Bureau are charged with collecting and reporting data on total U.S. employment across the full spectrum of SOC major groups. Thus, for a detailed occupation to be included in the SOC, either the Bureau of Labor Statistics or the Census Bureau must be able to collect and report data on that occupation.

SOC Coding Guidelines

The SOC Coding Guidelines are intended to assist users in consistently assigning SOC codes and titles to survey responses and in other coding activities.

1. A worker should be assigned to an SOC occupation code based on work performed.

2. When workers in a single job could be coded in more than one occupation, they should be coded in the occupation that requires the highest level of skill. If there is no measurable difference in skill requirements, workers should be coded in the occupation in which they spend the most time. Workers whose job is to teach at different levels (e.g., elementary, middle, or secondary) should be coded in the occupation corresponding to the highest educational level they teach.

3. Data collection and reporting agencies should assign workers to the most detailed occupation possible. Different agencies may use different levels of aggregation, depending on their ability to collect data. For more information on data produced using the SOC, see the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section. [Please note: FAQs will be included in the published manual but are not included in this notice.]

4. Workers who perform activities not described in any distinct detailed occupation in the SOC structure should be coded in an appropriate “All Other” or residual occupation. These residual occupational categories appear as the last occupation in a group with a code ending in “9” and are identified by having the words “All Other” appear at the end of the title.

5. Workers in Major Groups 33-0000 through 53-0000 who spend 80 percent or more of their time performing supervisory activities are coded in the appropriate first-line supervisor/manager category in the SOC. In these same Major Groups (33-0000 through 53-0000), persons with supervisory duties who spend less than 80 percent of their time supervising are coded with the workers they supervise.

6. Licensed and non-licensed workers performing the same work should be coded together in the same detailed occupation, except where specified otherwise in the SOC definition.

How to Read Appendix B and Appendix C

Appendix B is a table listing in the first column every detailed occupation from the 2000 SOC that has been revised (including changes to only the code or title) or replaced, with the corresponding recommended 2010 code(s) and title(s) appearing in the second column. An asterisk (*) after the occupation code and title in the second column means that the occupation in the first column only makes up part of the occupation in the second column; that is, the starred 2010 SOC occupation has been created from multiple 2000 SOC codes. Each occupation with the (*) notation appears multiple times in the table.

A new occupation may have been created by breaking out a group of workers previously classified in a 2000 SOC occupation, but the new occupation does not replace the 2000 SOC occupation. In this case, the 2000 occupation will indicate in italics which group or groups have been removed to create a new occupation.

Appendix C is a table listing in the first column every new or revised (including changes to only the code or title) detailed occupation that the SOCPC is recommending for the 2010 SOC. The corresponding 2000 SOC code(s) and title(s) appear in the second column. An asterisk (*) after the occupation code and title in the second column means that the occupation in the first column makes up only part of the occupation in the second column; that is, the starred 2000 SOC occupation has been divided into multiple new occupations. Each occupation with the (*) notation appears multiple times in the table.

Where a detailed occupation has been added or removed, the major group, minor group, and broad occupation codes for that occupation are also listed.
