Standard Occupational Classification

Docket Number 08‐0938 : Response to Comments on 2010 SOC : U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics

Docket No. 08-0938 requested a new detailed occupation for "Records and Information Managers." The SOCPC did not accept this recommendation, based on Classification Principle 9 on collectability. The number of workers performing records and information management tasks as their primary activity is not substantial enough to support a new detailed occupation. These workers are so dispersed throughout the economy that it would be difficult to reliably collect and report data. The SOCPC recommended modifying the definition for 11-3011 Administrative Services Managers to clarify the inclusion of records and information management. (See also Docket No. 08-0903).
