Docket Number 08‐1027 : Response to Comments on 2010 SOC : U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics

Docket No. 08-1027 requested removing 31-9095 Pharmacy Aides from the 2010 SOC structure. The SOCPC did not accept this recommendation. The SOCPC noted that pharmacy aides held a substantial number of jobs-about 50,000-in May 2007, according to the OES survey. The SOCPC recognized that employment levels may decline to levels that would support removing the occupation from the SOC in the future.
