Abstract : This paper will discuss previously used indices of 'within' and 'between group overlap and their limited effectiveness in selecting and defining job types from a CODAP Comprehensive Occupational Data Analysis Programs job clustering. Newly developed indices of core-task homogeneity and task uniqueness will be defined, demonstrated, and contrasted with the old indices as to quantity and quality of information provided. Printed output of the CODAP CORSET program, which computes and displays data on computer or analyst selected job groups in terms of the new indices, will be presented and interpreted in terms of their application in several occupational analysis studies.
