The Occupational Requirements Survey (ORS) is a new data set developed via a partnership with the Social Security Administration and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. This data set is slated to eventually replace the DOT. ORS provides updated mental, physical, environmental and cognitive demands for occupations found in today's labor market. ORS has additional data on topics such as sit/stand and pace that has never been collected before.
