DICTIONARY OF OCCUPATIONAL TITLES, 1965. VOLUME I, DEFINITIONS OF TITLES.
Bureau of Employment Security (DOL), Washington, DC.
THE OCCUPATIONAL DEFINITIONS PRESENT CONSIDERABLY MORE INFORMATION THAN THOSE IN PREVIOUS EDITIONS (1939 AND 1949), AND A NEW CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM REFLECTS RELATIONSHIPS AMONG OCCUPATIONS NOT ONLY IN TERMS OF WORK INVOLVED BUT ALSO IN TERMS OF WORKER CHARACTERISTICS REQUIRED SUCH AS TRAINING TIME, APTITUDES, INTERESTS, TEMPERAMENTS, PHYSICAL DEMANDS, WORKING CONDITIONS, INDUSTRY, AND WORK PERFORMED. THERE ARE 21,741 SEPARATE OCCUPATIONS DEFINED WHICH ARE KNOWN BY 13,809 ADDITIONAL TITLES, MAKING A TOTAL OF 35,550 TITLES. THIS EDITION CONTAINS 6,432 JOBS NEW TO THE "DICTIONARY." DEFINITIONS ARE ARRANGED ALPHABETICALLY AND INCLUDE INFORMATION ON WHAT GETS DONE, HOW IT GETS DONE, AND WHY IT GETS DONE. IN VOLUME 2 (VT 003 655) THE OCCUPATIONS HAVE BEEN INCORPORATED INTO A CLASSIFICATION STRUCTURE IN WHICH THE INDIVIDUAL OCCUPATIONS ARE IDENTIFIED BY 6-DIGIT CODE NUMBERS AND ARRANGED BY THE OCCUPATIONAL GROUP AND THE WORKER TRAITS. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE AS GPO L7.2--OC1/965/V.I FOR $5.00 FROM SUPERINTENDENT OF DOCUMENTS, U.S. GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE, WASHINGTON, D.C. 20402. (ET)
