The OCC1990 variable is only available beginning with the 1968 ASEC sample. The occupational codes used in the CPS prior to 1968 were substantially different than in later years. Specifically, they were only two digits and there were fewer than 40 categories. After 1968, occupational codes were expanded to three digits and well over 200 categories. Due to the lack of detail in the pre-1968 occupational codes, expanding OCC1990 to these samples would be problematic.


Sorry that I could not deliver better news.
