We establish a concordance between U.S. and Japanese occupation classifications. Each occupation in U.S. O*NET is assigned to a corresponding occupation in the employment table of Japan's Input-Output Tables. With such concordance, we can use rich unique information provided by O*NET, such as importance of tasks for each occupation, to calculate various measures including task content of Japanese trade. The complete concordance table is reported.
