This response returns the hierarchical work activities data for an occupation. Any combination of the following four levels may be displayed:

  • gwa — Generalized work activities rated across all occupations
  • iwa — Intermediate work activities spanning multiple job families
  • dwa — Detailed work activities across occupations in a single job family
  • task — Task statements specific to a single occupation

Provide the desired levels as a comma-separated list in the display parameter. If this parameter is omitted, all levels are returned.

More specific activities are nested within the relevant broader activities. Not all generalized work activities have relevant occupation-specific activities, so some levels of the outline may be missing depending on the occupation and item.
