OCC_OJ_CPS8
Detailed occupation category, other job (CPS)

Codes

OCC_OJ_CPS8 is a 5-digit numeric variable.
NIU=99999

2003-2010
2011+

Description

OCC_OJ_CPS8 reports the four-digit occupational code for the respondent's other (second) job, if applicable.

Researchers who would like broader occupational categories may wish to use OCC2_OJ_CPS8, which collapses occupation information into fewer, broader categories.

OCC_OJ_CPS8 was collected at the time of the last CPS interview, 2-5 months before the ATUS interview. The occupation of the respondent's other job was not collected at the time of the ATUS interview, but the occupation of the main job was. See OCC (and OCC2).

For the occupation of the respondent's main job at the time of the CPS interview, OCC_CPS8 reports the occupation information for that job using the same four-digit Census industry codes as OCC_OJ_CPS8. OCC2_CPS8 reports occupation information using the broader categories.

Comparability

From 2003-2010, ATUS and CPS occupation codes follow the Census Bureau's 2002 Occupational Classification System. In 2011 forward, ATUS and CPS occupation codes follow the Census Bureau's 2010 Occupational Classification System.
