Appendix B. Standard Occupational
Classification system




  The Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) system is used by all Federal statistical agencies. Workers are classi-
  fied into one of approximately 800 detailed occupations. To facilitate classification, occupations are combined to form
  major groups, minor groups, and broad occupations. Each item in the hierarchy is designated by a six-digit code. Ma-
  jor group codes end with 0000, minor groups end with 000, and broad occupations end with 0. The following list is
  used by the National Compensation Survey (NCS) for publication.
