Returns metadata for an occupation.

This endpoint accepts a occupation and, optionally, a location and returns a range of metadata about the occupation. The endpoint expects an occupation code as input; use Occupation Classification to find the relevant code based on a job title. The returned metadata includes descriptive information such as occupation title, alternative titles, description, career cluster, volume of supply and demand, demographics of people employed, and typical salaries.

Commonly, data from this endpoint is used to augment the results of Recommend Destination Occupation and Recommend Source Occupation.

Additional Notes:

Missing Data: See occupation schema documentation for detail on which output fields may return NULL values when the data is not available.

Locations: If a location is not entered, the results returned are national. The occupation schema documentation includes information about which output fields vary by location and which are constant for all US locations.
