Topic 1: Addressing Health Risks

Works with BLS to add COVID-19 risk information to the SOC System trending idea

• Coordinate with the Bureau of Labor Statistics to add COVID-19 risk information to future versions of the Standard Occupational Classification System. With the pandemic having last over 6 months, epidemiologists and statisticians should possess enough raw data to be able to meaningfully make statistical estimates about risks of exposure to the coronavirus. The SOC system already collects a lot of data about different job categories, their relevant working conditions and that information should reflect the continuing reality and threat of the coronavirus.
