I have been asked to help update our city's EEO report. EEO requirements require that we report out data using the EEO-4 job categories found in section 3 of this web page. This job classification system does not match the one that is used in the current ACS, a more detailed version of which can be found in table S2401. There is also a simplified 6 category system used in many other occupation related ACS tables. I also looked into the 2010 EEO ACS file, which has not been updated as far as I can tell. The EEO file includes tables using a job category classification that is similar to the EEO-4 system, but does not one-to-one.
Has anyone come across a similar data challenge? Were you able to find data that can be compared to EEO-4 or did you not do so? It is unclear to me if that step is a necessary one, since I am unfamiliar with the overall EEO process.

I'm passing along a message from Ana Montalvo, Census Bureau's Industry and Occupation Statistics Branch
We are aware that the 5th category does not match. The respective federal agency who requested the table is aware of this issue, and hopefully plans to update it for the next Tab which is planned to be released 2021.

FAQ 52 has the response to this specific question-
In preparing a workforce chart for an EEOP Utilization Report, a recipient may need to reclassify some jobs in its workforce to correspond with the revised job categories used in the EEO Tabulation 2006-2010 (5-year ACS data). For example, to reclassify jobs that were previously classified as Para-Professional, a category that no longer exists, or to reclassify jobs previously designated as simply Protective Services (instead of the new categories of Protective Services Sworn and Protective Services Non-Sworn), one should use the job classifications listed on the U.S. Census Bureau's web site. To access the information from the website, locate the third line from the top of the page, click on the underlined words "State and Local Occupation Groups." The link will lead to the file Occupational Crosswalk to State and Local Government Job Categories. Scrolling downward, find particular job titles listed in the Category Title column, and on the same line for each job title, in the far right column, there is a number that corresponds to one of the eight job categories in the EEO Tabulation 2006-2010 (5-year ACS data) (i.e., one (1) for Officials and Managers, two (2) for Professionals, three (3) for Technicians, four (4) for Protective Services: Sworn, five (5) for Protective Services: Non-sworn, six (6) for Administrative Support, seven (7) for Skilled Craft, and eight (8) for Service Maintenance).
The crosswalk of occupations and its definitions are located below.
