This report summarizes work conducted in late 2014 and early 2015 to revisit linkages between the 52 abilities in the O*NET Content Model and a subset of physically-oriented GWA and WC statements. This effort was carried out in response to user feedback indicating that ratings on physical and psychomotor abilities for some occupations seemed to be different than would be expected intuitively. The updated linkage data provide the most current information for use by the analysts. This data will be in effect going forward beginning with the Analysis Cycle 16 data collection effort.
