Standard Occupational Classifications

The Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) system is a federal statistical standard used by federal agencies to classify workers into occupational categories for the purpose of collecting, calculating, or disseminating data. All workers are classified into detailed occupations according to their occupational definition. To facilitate classification, detailed occupations are combined into broad occupations, minor groups, and major groups. Detailed occupations in the SOC with similar job duties, and in some cases skills, education, and/or training, are grouped together.
