Standard Occupational Classification

Docket Number 08‐0454 : Response to Comments on 2010 SOC : U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics

Docket No. 08-0454 requested a new detailed occupation for "Hearing Aid Specialists," which is an illustrative example for 29-2099 Health Technologists and Technicians, All Other in the 2000 SOC. The SOCPC accepted this recommendation because Hearing Aid Specialists is a well-defined and measurable occupation. They are concentrated in a relatively small number of industries, which may facilitate collectability. The SOCPC recommends establishing a new code for this occupation, 29-2092.
