"Classification Structures for Career Information" was created to provide Career Information Delivery Systems (CIDS) staff with pertinent and useful occupational information arranged according to the Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) structure. Through this publication, the National Occupational Information Coordinating Committee provides technical assistance to states to assist them in converting their existing CIDS to a SOC structure. A secondary purpose for the publication is to provide counselors with a compendium of occupational information compiled from a great variety of sources. The publication is organized in three volumes. This second volume, divided into four parts, contains technical information about the individual occupations assigned to each SOC category. It is intended primarily for technicians who prepare information for a CIDS or other professionals working with occupational information. Subtitled, "Occupational Characteristics," this volume contains guidance-oriented, descriptive statements for each occupation. Each SOC category is identified, along with all of its assigned Dictionary of Occupational Titles (DOT) codes, and other crosswalk codes. Composite classification tables provide an overview or summary of the characteristics associated with the DOT titles assigned to the SOC codes. (This document, part 1 of volume 2, contains characteristics for SOC numbers treated in the range 1099 to 4490.) (KC)
