If YFM57 was coded not ascertained, YRML57 was coded 9999. If YFM57
was coded don't know, YFML57 was coded don't know. If a dollar response
was given to YFM57 but YFRRT5 was not ascertained, YFML57 was coded 9.
If a dollar response was given to YFM57 but YFRRT5 was coded don't know,

It should be noted that this grouping of occupations (occupational
categories) is different from the other "major occupation groups"
appearing in most parts of the codebook. In order to classify occupations
into "major occupation groups," information on occupation, industry, and
class of worker is required. Whenever industry or class of worker is not
ascertained for a particular job, the grouping of occupations is the
occupational grouping from the 1970 Census.
