I understand the BLS SOC codes, but I have absolutely no idea what connection Econominst != Statistician could possibly have to do with that column about ultimate frisbee.

Rather than writing a blog post about the dangers of misclassification, you cleverly demonstrated its effects by posting an irrelevant article from the NYT.

Nice article about ultimate frisbee, though. (Thanks to the commenters for enlightening me, I had no idea what was going on. Look forward to seeing what the correct link is …)

I presume our host plays ultimate frisbee and does not consider himself an economist?
