610. What does "work that exists in the national economy" mean?

"Work that exists in the national economy" is work in the U.S. economy. We will find that you are not disabled even if you cannot do any of your past relevant work, if you can adjust to other work consisting of jobs that exist in significant numbers. The jobs must exist in the national economy, either in the region where you live or in several regions of the country.
