As part of our effort to add clarity to Lightcast taxonomies and better align the use of taxonomy labels and their versions across all services, we will be will be removing the following taxonomy resources in the classification API:

  • canoc_2016
  • canoc_2021
  • cip_1985
  • cip_1990
  • cip_2000
  • cip_2010
  • cip_2020
  • isco_2008
  • naics_2017
  • naics_2022
  • onet_2019
  • soc_2018
  • soc_2019
  • soc_2021
  • ssoc_2020
  • uksic_2007
  • uksoc_2020
  • isced

Please begin consuming these taxonomies by utilizing the go-forward taxonomy resources that utilize the year as the MAJOR version of the taxonomies semantic versioning, and clearly state whether they are the standard taxonomy or a Lightcast variant:

  • canoc_2016 -> canoc_standard (2016.x.x)
  • canoc_2021
    • Version: 1.0.0 -> canoc_standard (2021.x.x)
    • Version: 2.0.0 -> canoc_lightcast (2021.x.x)
  • cip_1985 -> cip_standard (1985.x.x)
  • cip_1990 -> cip_standard (1990.x.x)
  • cip_2000 -> cip_standard (2000.x.x)
  • cip_2010 -> cip_standard (2010.x.x)
  • cip_2020 -> cip_standard (2020.x.x)
  • isco_2008 -> isco_standard (2008.x.x)
  • naics_2017 -> naics_standard (2017.x.x)
  • naics_2022 -> naics_standard (2022.x.x)
  • onet_2019 -> onet_standard (2019.x.x)
  • soc_2018 -> soc_standard (2018.x.x)
  • soc_2019 -> soc_lightcast (2010.2019.x)
  • soc_2021 -> soc_lightcast (2018.2021.x)
  • ssoc_2020 -> ssoc_standard (2020.x.x)
  • uksic_2007 -> uksic_standard (2007.x.x)
  • uksoc_2020 -> uksoc_standard (2020.x.x)
