    Converting census occupation codes to other standard codes

    I'm trying to do economic base location quotient calculations and the local data I have is coded with Census Occupational codes which I can translate to SOC codes but all the national data from the economic census is in NAICS and I can't find a good bridge to translate those.

    Am I missing something here? Is there another workaround?

    Are you looking for this:
    1997 NAICS and 1987 SIC Correspondence Tables
    http://www.census.gov/epcd/www/naicstab.htm

    Also available at this site are lists of
    2002 NAICS codes (with links to definitions),
    1997 NAICS codes,
    tables showing correspondence between NAICS 97 and SIC,
    tables showing correspondence between NAICS 97 and NAICS 02,
    and other files for downloading.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Moderator note:
    Indeed it does. Also, jdstl1977, I edited the thread title to be a little more clear for folks that might not know what SOC or NAICS stand for {Standard Occupation Codes and North American Industry Classification System}. I think you'll get better responses here and with a more generic thread title. Carry on.

    I'm not sure I understand. Are you trying to correlate SOC's to NAICS? If so, there is no way to do so. You can find data on the distribution of SOC's by NAICS code, though.

    Yes, that's what I'm trying to do. I was hoping that since doing location quotient calculations are a "common" thing that someone might have created a bridge?
