The April 4, 2011 version of the Census to SOC to OPM and EEO job codes is the base document from which changes are being made This version of the table incorporates all changes to date and is not expected to be revised again until the final version is released in December 2012. The changes made to this crosswalk table were the result of additional discussions among staff from Census, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, EEOC and other individuals or organizations. The three changes were in the assignment of Census/SOC occupations into the EEO-1 (9) and EEO (14) categories, as can be seen in the attached document on changes.

Also, the number of detailed Census occupations contained in this table is the maximum that could be released by Census. However, due to Census rules protecting confidentiality, the number of occupations may have to be reduced. As with previous versions of the Special EEO File, the reduction will achieved by combining smaller occupations with similar categories so that confidentiality will not be compromised.
