Response to Comment on 2010 SOC:
Docket Number 08-0337

Docket No. 08-0337 requested a new detailed occupation for "Anesthesiologist Assistants." The SOCPC did not accept this recommendation, based on Classification Principle 1 which states that occupations are assigned to only one occupational category and Classification Principle 9 on collectability. Some, but not all, Anesthesiologist Assistants are nurses. Anesthesiologist Assistants are estimated to be small in number, they overlap with other occupations, and they are not uniformly defined.
