The Basics

If the "Show wages in today's dollars" box is checked, the wage estimates are updated from Q2, 2014 to the latest quarter's employment cost index. Although this process does not consider seasonal factors, in most cases, it should provide a fairly realistic estimate of what someone doing the job today might expect to make.

This tab compares the selected location, industry, and occupation against similar occupations on file.

What Is A Related Occupation?

Occupations are organized like a family tree based on a hierarchy established by the Standard Occupational Classification System (SOC). This system also uses a related occupations table obtained from version 3.1 of the O*Net database. The O*Net related occupation model considers knowledge areas, skills, abilities, work environment, and work activities for the job instead of the SOC structure.

Each occupation may have parents, children, and siblings.

  1. An all-occupation estimate has no parent occupations. However, there are 23 major occupational (SOC-2) groups which may be considered its children.
  2. Each major occupational group estimate usually has a corresponding all-occupation parent. A major group usually contains children at the more detailed three-digit (SOC-3) or six-digit (SOC-6) levels.
  3. Detailed six-digit occupation (SOC-6) estimates have up to 10 occupations related occupations from O*Net.
