About SOC Codes

SOC is an occupational classification system to classify workers and jobs into categories for the purpose of collecting, calculating, analyzing, and disseminating data. The SOC covers all jobs in the national economy, including occupations in the public, private, and military sectors. All federal agencies that publish occupational data for statistical purposes are required to use the SOC to increase data comparability across federal programs. The SOC classifies all occupations in which work is performed for pay or profit. The use of the SOC system can help benefit job hunters, researchers, and those exploring potential career paths.
