MEPS uses the 4-digit Census occupation and industry coding systems developed for the Current Population Survey and the American Community Survey.

For industry coding, MEPS uses the 2007 4-digit Census industry codes. Descriptions of the 4-digit Census industry codes can be found at the following link: https://www.bls.gov/tus/census07icodes.pdf.

For occupation coding, MEPS uses the 2010 4-digit Census occupation codes. Descriptions of the 4-digit Census occupation codes can be found at the following link: https://www.bls.gov/cps/cenocc2010.pdf.

See https://www.census.gov/topics/employment/industry-occupation/guidance/code-lists.html for more information on the Census coding systems used by MEPS.
