The U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics is asking the marine industry to provide updates to the agency’s Standards of Occupational Classification — a published database that covers all American occupations.

The National Marine Manufacturers Association said this is “an important metric that helps industries highlight their economic impact, but one [in] which we have historically been underrepresented.”

To help the industry be accurately represented, the NMMA is asking for help.

“Our plan is to crowdsource industry job titles from various organizations and companies so that we can more accurately provide the government with a complete set of data from our industry,” the NMMA wrote in its newsletter.

“This will be a low-commitment process, which can be done at your leisure over the next few months,” the trade group said.

Interested parties should contact Michael Lewan at mlewan@nmma.org by Dec. 9.
