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

The column named Data Value provides both the mean extent rating (indicated by the value EX in the Scale ID column) and the top three high-point values for respondents endorsing each occupation (indicated by VH in the Scale ID Column).

The high-point values represent the following elements:

 0.00 = No high point available 
 1.00 = Achievement 
 2.00 = Working Conditions 
 3.00 = Recognition 
 4.00 = Relationships 
 5.00 = Support 
 6.00 = Independence 

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.
