Thank you for your hard work in making the CPS microdata accessible and easy to use.
I am presently working with the OCC1990 and related occupation classification variables. I noticed that in the table which describes the occupation codes, there are headers indicating the broad category to which a given occupation belongs. For example, occupations 044-059 are all considered “engineers”.
My present research is concerned with on these broader occupational categories. I am curious if there is a way to download or otherwise access them; otherwise, I would have to manually hard-code them into my code based on the table.
