December 2010 Updating the O*NET-SOC Taxonomy: Incorporating the 2010 SOC Structure

This report describes the O*NET-SOC 2010 taxonomy structure based on the 2010 SOC. A summary of the taxonomy revision process and implementation of resulting changes is provided. The February 2011 release of the O*NET 15.1 database incorporates the alignment of codes, titles, and definitions with the 2010 SOC and the addition of new and emerging (N&E) occupations to the O*NET-SOC taxonomy. The appendices below outline the O*NET-SOC 2010 taxonomy and changes that occurred from transitioning to the 2010 SOC.

March 2009 New and Emerging Occupations of the 21st Century: Updating the O*NET-SOC Taxonomy

This report provides an overview of the O*NET-SOC 2009 taxonomy. The June 2009 release of the O*NET 14.0 database incorporates 153 new and emerging (N&E) occupations identified within 17 in-demand industry clusters. In addition to the report that summarizes the update and implementation, two useful appendices are provided. Appendix A is a listing of occupations in the O*NET-SOC 2009 taxonomy and Appendix B lists the included N&E occupations.

March 2006 New and Emerging (N&E) Occupations Methodology Development Report

This report describes a process for identifying, evaluating, and incorporating New and Emerging (N&E) occupations which will be added to the O*NET-SOC classification system. The effort to identify N&E occupations is driven by the evolving nature of workforce requirements stemming from changes in technology, society, law, and business practices. Incorporating N&E occupations into the O*NET system makes O*NET information more beneficial and responsive to the needs of its many users in both the public and private sector.

March 2006 Updating the O*NET-SOC Taxonomy

This report provides an overview of O*NET-SOC 2006 taxonomy. The June 2006 release of the O*NET 10.0 database represents the first broad change to the O*NET taxonomy since the OMB mandated conversion to the SOC in 2000. In addition to the report that summarizes the update and implementation, 3 useful appendices are provided. Appendix A is a listing of occupations by type of change, Appendix B lists the occupations in the O*NET-SOC 2006 Data Collection Plan, and Appendix C lists occupations populated with revised legacy analyst data.

May 2001 Transitioning O*NET to the Standard Occupational Classification

This report describes the conversion process that O*NET's classification structure underwent to become compliant with the Standard Occupational Classification (SOC). The Office of Management and Budget recently required all federal agencies responsible for collecting occupational information to comply with the SOC structure. This report explains this conversion process and provides examples of the various types of linkages between the SOC occupations and O*NET occupations that constitute the coding system in O*NET 3.1. The report also provides a complete mapping between SOC occupations, O*NET 98 occupational units, and O*NET 3.1 (O*NET-SOC) occupations. The mapping to O*NET-SOC occupations remains unchanged with subsequent database versions.
