Reference Manual (API Version 1.6) — O*NET OnLine services

Notice: the Web Services API will be upgraded on February 7, 2017. See the API Version 1.7 page for more information.

O*NET Web Services uses a RESTful external site web services API. Currently all resources are read-only and accessed with the GET method. Access is limited to registered developers through HTTP Basic authentication; you can obtain a username and password by signing up for the developer program. Before you sign up, you can try our interactive demo to see the API in action.

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

  • 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.
