Production Workers, All Other -- List of DOT Industries and Number of Occupations

In this unending quest to eviscerate the identification of work inside of Production Workers, All Other as representing a significant number of jobs in any single DOT code, I present the list of the industries and the number of DOT codes associated with that industry designation. 

To recap, SOC code 51-9199 represents 1,526 different DOT codes after extracting 61 DOT codes to form SOC code 51-3099.  To determine the number of jobs in any DOT code, we need to cross-index the SOC code with the industry code in the Employment Projections.  Getting more specific with the industries listed in County Business Patterns provides more specificity.  But that doesn't not end the inquiry.  The estimate of the number of jobs represented by a single DOT code must look to the occupation and industry codes and then take into account the number of other DOT codes that share that intersection(s).  Here is the list to aid in that endeavor:

The next project requires correlation between the DOT industry designations and the NoemplAICS codes used by BLS in the Occupational Employment Statistics, including the employment projections, and by the Census Bureau in County Business Patterns.
