Comprehensive Occupational Data Analysis Programs (CODAP): Ordering of Hierarchically Grouped Case Data (KPATH) and Print KPATH (PRKPTH) Programs.
Phalen, William J.
The Comprehensive Occupational Data Analysis Programs (CODAP) are designed for analyzing and retrieving occupational survey information collected by means of job inventories. Two programs that are parts of the CODAP system are described: the Ordering of Hierarchically Grouped Case Data (KPATH) program which reorders case data permitting identification of background variables having similar values for all or most cases in the group and enabling the generation of composite job descriptions for any hierarchical group; and the Print KPATH (PRKPTH) program which produces a printed report of case data elements for any selected background variables from an input-ordered or KPATH-ordered history data tape. The report discusses the application of these programs with supporting diagrams, tables, charts, and examples. Appended materials consisting of descriptions of other CODAP programs and a definition of terms used in the KPATH program documentation are included. (Author/EC)
