O*NET Directory

NOTE: The NCSC has updated database contents and documentation for versions 9.0-15.1, 17.0 and 18.0.  The changes involve renaming the ACTIVITY table to ACTIVITIES, the variable name used by the National O*NET Center for those versions of the database.  Database versions updated included Visual FoxPro and SAS/PC.  The Access versions had incorporated the correct table name.. 

 

The NCSC distributes resources based on each version of the O*NET database:
 
Current Production Version
