Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) are crosswalked with SOC occupation codes to analyze educational outcomes, wage premiums, and workforce supply and demand. Job banks use them to match qualifications with job postings and labor market data.
The 2020 download file contains both the content for WID tables occcodes/cipcode and the CIP-SOC crosswalk to be loaded into occxocc.
– The values all use stfips 00, so for state use it may need to be duplicated for the state.
– The crosswalk goes both ways – from SOC to CIP and from CIP to SOC. In this table structure, the “from” is housed in codetype/code and the “to” is in codetype2/code2.
– Not all CIPs have a direct occupational match and not all SOCs have a direct CIP match.
Military crosswalks are used to match job classifications from the various branches of military to civilian jobs. Veterans hiring and job programs attempt to identify the best fit for exiting service members, and to help employers understand the skills veterans bring with them. The crosswalks can be complicated because the different branches of military have different coding structures, the most common classifications of military jobs have subclassifications, and there are frequent updates.
