Standard Occupational Classification

Docket Number 08‐0292 : Response to Comments on 2010 SOC : U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics

Docket No. 08-0292 requested a new detailed occupation for "Genetic Counselors." The SOCPC accepted this recommendation because the work that Genetic Counselors perform is sufficiently distinct from the work of other occupations. Although employment is low, Genetic Counselors are concentrated in certain industries, reducing concerns regarding collectability. The SOCPC recommends establishing a new code for this occupation, 29-9092.
