Download "Occupational Change" Data

From this page you can download Occupational change data that were used to prepare the "Occupational Change" web pages.

There are three things to keep in mind when using these data:

  • There are missing values in this file. A value of -999 indicates that the data for a given variable is not available. For example, if a 2000 metropolitan area was not defined in 1990, all 1990 values for this area will be coded -999.
  • 1990 metropolitan areas that no longer met the criteria defining metropolitan areas in 2000 are not included in this data file.
  • The file contains a single row of column headers followed by rows of data for each metropolitan area. The column headers are not very descriptive, so click here for a list of variable descriptions.
