NIOSH Industry and Occupation Computerized Coding System
DHHS (NIOSH) Publication Number 2016-128
What are our priorities?
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) NIOSH Industry and Occupation Computerized Coding System (NIOCCS) is a web-based system that translates industry and occupation text into standardized industry and occupation (I&O) codes. NIOCCS facilitates the coding of occupational data in order to increase the research and surveillance of occupationally related diseases. The system focuses on these areas:
- Increasing the percentage of data automatically coded.
- Maximizing the use of existing data sets for occupational safety and health research and surveillance.
