Task Statements

Purpose:Provide a mapping of O*NET-SOC codes (occupations) to tasks associated with the occupation.
Structure and Description:
ColumnTypeColumn Content
O*NET-SOC CodeCharacter(10)O*NET-SOC Code (see Occupation Data)
Task IDInteger(8)Identifies each task
TaskCharacter Varying(1000)Task statement associated with an occupation
Task TypeCharacter Varying(12)Core or Supplemental
Incumbents RespondingInteger(4)Number of incumbents providing task information

This file contains the tasks associated with each O*NET-SOC occupation.

The file is displayed in seven tab delimited fields with the columns named O*NET-SOC Code, Task ID, Task, Task Type, Incumbents Responding, Date, and Domain Source. The seven fields are represented by one row. There are a total of 19,530 rows of data in this file.
