This file contains new and revised task statements proposed for future data collection. In their survey responses during the on-going data collection, job incumbents are given the opportunity to provide any statements of tasks that they feel are not represented in the current survey task list for their respective occupations. Based on a review and analysis of such statements, drawn from the occupations in the initial data collection, revisions were made to existing tasks and emerging tasks were identified.

The file is displayed in 9 tab delimited fields with the columns named O*NET-SOC Code, Title, Task, Category, Original Task ID, Original Task, Write-in Total, Date, and Domain Source. The 9 fields are represented by one row. There are a total of 438 rows of data in this file.
