This file contains the Content Model Interest data associated with each O*NET-SOC occupation.

Interest ratings are presented as two scales: OI reports the RIASEC level of each interest and IH presents “high-point codes”, the numbers of the RIASEC scales for the first, second and/or third highest ratings.

The high-point values represent the following elements:

 0.00 = No high point available 
 1.00 = Realistic 
 2.00 = Investigative 
 3.00 = Artistic 
 4.00 = Social 
 5.00 = Enterprising 
 6.00 = Conventional 

The file is displayed in seven tab delimited fields with the columns named O*NET-SOC Code, Element ID, Element Name, Scale ID, Data Value, Date, and Domain Source. The seven fields are represented by one row. There are a total of 8,766 rows of data in this file.
