Goals of the Update Briefing
  • Overview of ONET Project
  • Data Collection Program
  • Address OIDAP Questions
  • Products Tools
  • ONET Users
  • Special Projects

3
OIDAP Questions
  • Please describe how the ONET data collection
    strategy builds upon the BLS Occupational
    Employment Statistics (OES) database.
  • Are you still using Dun Bradstreet data to find
    establishments? Were OES data not able to
    accomplish this, or is it an efficiency issue?
  • What was the original balance between the
    Establishment Method and the Occupational Expert
    Method for populating the ONET database? Has
    that changed now that you are in maintenance
    mode? How are the occupational experts
    identified?
  • Can you describe the role of the state workforce
    development offices in data collection for ONET?
    Has this changed over time?
  • Why did ONET decide not to use field analysts to
    collect the data on occupations?

4
OIDAP Questions (cont.)
  • What are the major challenges associated with
    identifying employees in specific occupations to
    observe in the field?
  • How do Detailed Work Activities differ from
    Generalized Work Activities in the ONET? How
    were they empirically derived?
  • We understand that a rule of thumb for
    statistical sufficiency was set at 15
    observations for each domain. Are you still
    satisfied with that number?
  • Are you planning any changes in procedure or
    content as a result of the recent review of ONET
    by the National Research Council?
  • How might your sampling parameters change if the
    results were subject to legal challenge?
  • What advice do you have for SSA as they begin to
    develop an OIS for disability adjudication
    purposes?

  • Detailed Work Activities, Green, Tasks, Tools and
    Technologies (T2)

29
Establishment Method
  • Two stage sample
  • Business establishments - POC
  • Job incumbents within business establishments

30
Establishment Method (cont.)
  • Job incumbents complete one of three survey
    questionnaires (25 -30 minutes)
  • Generalized Work Activities, Knowledge/Work
    Styles, or Work Context
  • Task List
  • Background Info
  • Incumbents choose response option
  • Paper-and-pencil
  • Web-based (approximately 25)

31
Design of Collection Waves
  • Identify 50 primary occupations to target in a
    sample wave
  • Wave X.1 Designed to get 34 of sample
  • Wave X.2 Designed to get 33 of sample
  • Wave X.3 Designed to get 33 of sample
  • Wave X.4 Sample residual

32
Design of Collection Waves (cont.)
  • Each wave is a cluster of similar occupations
  • Secondary occupations which are found across
    industries are also included to maximize
    efficiency
  • Multiple sub-waves allow for greater precision
  • Locating occupations
  • Controlling public burden and project resources

33
Stage One Sampling
  • OES data from BLS used to determine the initial
    industry distribution for each occupation
  • Sample business establishments selected from
    database of business locations

34
Stage One Sampling (cont.)
  • OES data from BLS used to determine the initial
    industry distribution for each occupation
  • Indicates which industries occupations are
    employed in and the share and distribution of
    occupational employment across industries
  • Does not contain information on establishments

35
Stage One Sampling (cont.)
  • Industry information for each occupation is
    refined by ONET Center analysts
  • Review and face validity checks
  • For example, religious institution sub-section
    removed from service industry if sampling for
    bartenders
  • Determine industries to include based on overall
    distribution and population coverage goals
  • Refined/target by experience from previous
    updates, when available

36
Stage One Sampling (cont.)
  • Sample business establishments selected from a
    frame of business locations
  • Dunn Bradstreet (DB) database
  • 15 Million establishments
  • Info obtained from multiple sources
  • Tax records, credit reports, telephone
    directories
  • Updated continuously on a monthly basis
  • Links to SIC and NAICS industry information

37
Population Coverage
  • Gather data on the core of the occupation
  • Where the majority of incumbents employed
  • Average coverage level is 85

38
Population Coverage (cont.)
39
Stage Two Sampling
  • Led by highly qualified ONET Business Liaisons
    (ONET BL)
  • Full time staff working in dedicated call center
  • Educational and work experience criteria higher
    than typical telephone interviewer
  • The sampled establishments Point-of-Contact
    (POC) works with the ONET BL to identify the a
    list of eligible employees
  • Identification Profiles (ID Profile) are used
    when asking POC if occupations are present
  • Helps ensure accuracy in matching employees to
    occupations

40
Stage Two Sampling (cont.)
  • Automated, random selection of job incumbents
    from the POCs eligible list
  • Limits placed on POC burden
  • No more than 5 occupations sampled
  • Never more than 20 employees selected
  • Can only be included within the data collection
    once each year
  • Selected employees
  • Asked to complete the questionnaire on their own
    time
  • Responses remain anonymous and confidential from
    both the employer and the public
  • Complete via the web or mail back directly
  • All individual identifiers removed

41
Model-Aided Sampling (MAS)
  • Innovative sampling approach that reduces data
    collection cost and burden to the public by
    preventing occupations from greatly exceeding
    their targeted sample
  • Builds on existing sampling paradigms
    traditional and model based
  • For each occupation, a targeted sample size for
    specific demographic domains is modeled
  • Census region
  • Establishment size
  • Industry division
  • Data collection is halted in a MAS cell when the
    targeted respondent sample size is projected to
    be achieved

45
Supplemental Frame Method
  • Multiple strategies to augment the establishment
    data collection
  • Supplemental Frame Incumbent
  • Job incumbents are directly accessed via an
    association listing to complete the data
    collection
  • e.g. Industrial Organizational Psychologists
  • Supplemental Frame Establishment
  • Targeted employer sample developed via expert
    contact/associations where the sampling frame
    coverage is significantly high but is not
    adequate by itself
  • e.g. Freight and Cargo Inspectors
  • Special Frame Establishment
  • Targeted employer sample completely developed via
    expert contact/associations where coverage is
    extremely high
  • Normal establishment method is bypassed
  • e.g. Nuclear Power Reactor Operators Flight
    Attendants

46
Occupational Experts (OE) Method
  • Used when occupation is difficult to locate in
    establishments
  • Small employment size
  • Job incumbents inaccessible due to work in remote
    locations
  • New and emerging occupations

47
OE Method (cont.)
47
  • Data collected from experts in target occupation
  • Supervisors, trainers, others with extensive
    knowledge of occupation
  • Identify appropriate source organizations (e.g.
    professional associations)
  • Good coverage of occupation
  • Can identify members who are occupation experts
  • Willing to provide lists of experts

48
OE Method (cont.)
48
  • Select sample from membership lists
