Multiple Dockets on Community Health Workers : Response to Comments on 2010 SOC : U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics

Multiple dockets requested that the SOCPC create a distinct occupation for Community Health Workers, removing it from 21-1091 Health Educators and Community Health Workers, because of differences in work performed, skills, and education and training. The SOCPC accepted this recommendation and created a separate occupation and a new definition for 21-1094 Community Health Workers. The SOCPC modified the title and definition for 21-1091 Health Educators and Community Health Workers to eliminate Community Health Workers.
