Listing of collapsed/combined OCC2010 categories


My understanding is that the OCC2010 variable is based on the 2003-2010 CPS occupation schemes (see here: Confused at coding of OCC2010).

Is there a complete listing of the way these categories were collapsed and combined when creating the OCC2010 variable?



A couple of resources may be useful in understanding the method for creating OCC2010. First, this crosswalk table provides information on the relationships between OCC2010 and contemporary OCC codes. Second, this BLS working paper details the construction of the OCC1990 variable, which is closely related to the methodology used for constructing OCC2010.

I hope these resources help.
