Occupational Employment and Wage Statistics

Upcoming changes to occupations for May 2019 and May 2020 OES estimates

During the transition to the 2018 Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) system, the OES estimates will be based on a “hybrid” structure that is combination of the 2010 SOC and 2018 SOC. A similar process was used to transition from the 2000 SOC to the 2010 SOC, as described in OES FAQ F.8. The 2010/2018 hybrid structure is currently under development.
