Data from the [Health and Retirement Study Linkage to Occupational Information Network Data (HRS-O*NET) is now available. The 2022 Health and Retirement Study Linkage to Occupational Information Network Data (HRS-O*NET) provides a linkage between measures and variables provided in the Occupational Information Network (O*NET) with detailed 2010 Census occupational codes found in 2010-2020 restricted access Health and Retirement Study (HRS) data releases. The HRS-O*NET details occupational data for up to 463 unique 2010 Census occupational codes per HRS wave. It contains over 3,000 variables related to worker and occupational characteristics. The variables are distributed across nine datasets that are reflective of nine different O*NET dimensions: Knowledge, Skills, Abilities, Interests, Work Values, Work Styles, Work Activities, Work Context, and Job Zones. Using the HRS “hhidpn” respondent identification variable, the HRS-O*NET datasets can be linked with any user-accessible HRS dataset at the respondent level.
