This file maps each Detailed Work Activity (DWA) to the task statements, and consequently to the O*NET-SOC occupations, requiring that activity. Each DWA is mapped to multiple task statements, and each referenced task statement is mapped to one or more DWAs.

The file is displayed in 8 tab delimited fields with the columns named O*NET-SOC Code, Title, Task ID, Task, DWA ID, DWA Title, Date, and Domain Source. The 8 fields are represented by one row. There are a total of 23,307 rows of data in this file.
