This file contains the Content Model Work Context data associated with each O*NET-SOC occupation. It is displayed in 16 tab delimited fields and identified using the column names provided above. Item rating level metadata is provided in columns named N, Standard Error, Lower CI Bound, Upper CI Bound, Recommend Suppress, Not Relevant, Date, and Domain Source. Refer to Appendix 2, Item Rating Level Statistics - Incumbent for additional information on these items. The 16 fields are represented by one row. There are a total of 321,590 rows of data in this file.

The column named Data Value provides both the mean rating (indicated by the value CX in the Scale ID column) and the percent of respondents endorsing each category (indicated by CXP in the Scale ID column).
