Standard Occupational Classification Manual (SOC)

"The 2000 Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) system is used by Federal statistical agencies to classify workers into occupational categories for the purpose of collecting, calculating, or disseminating data. All workers are classified into one of over 820 occupations according to their occupational definition. To facilitate classification, occupations are combined to form 23 major groups, 96 minor groups, and 449 broad occupations. Each broad occupation includes detailed occupation(s) requiring similar job duties, skills, education, or experience."

The SOC now supersedes the Dictionary of Occupational Titles (DOT) (below). See also O*NET Online: Occupational Information Network (above), which is another version of the Standard Occupational Classification Manual (SOC) that allows the user to match SOC and DOT occupational classification systems
