Some occupation and industry codes were altered in 2018 and 2019 to accommodate changes in ACS coding and to ensure that codes would be applied uniformly for each data year. In cases where two codes were combined in 2018, the previous codes were altered to reflect the new code. In cases where a single prior code was split into multiple codes, the new codes were combined to match the old code. For example, in 2018 the ACS split prior code 8190 (people working in hospitals) into codes 8191 and 8192 to identify specific types of hospital settings. These new codes were recoded to 8190 for the 2018 and 2019 models. In cases where the code was changed without combining with another code, the newer code was used for all cases.
