Abstract:

The Comprehensive Occupational Data Analysis Programs CODAP package is a highly interactive and efficient system of computer routines for analyzing, organizing, and reporting occupational information. Until recently, CODAP contained approximately thirty-five main programs for analyzing data collected with job inventories to produce task-level descriptions of the work performed by individuals and groups of individuals. It also contained programs for indentifying and describing the types of jobs existing in an occupational category, and for describing the characteristics of individuals falling into special or job-type groups. The new programs described in this paper represent a major addition to the CODAP system, filling an important gap by equipping the analyst with tools for addressing new problem areas. In addition to describing the eight new programs in detail and showing how they interact with existing programs, the paper provides an example demonstrating how the new programs can be used to develop and apply an equation which assigns training priorities to tasks in an occupational area based upon consideration of relevant task factor information.
