Data Bank Focus: Tech Talent

By Betsy Shepherd

Jun. 7, 2012

The 2012-13 Occupational Outlook Handbook, released in March by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, shows the high cost of and growing need for technology talent. The average pay for computer and information system managers is exceeded only by the average pay for chief executives and marketing managers. The projected growth rate for all computer occupations is 22 percent; the projected growth rate for all occupations is 14 percent. Only three other areas of occupation have higher growth rates than 22 percent: health care at 29 percent, personal care and service at 27 percent, and community and social service at 24 percent. Key business occupations have growth rates well below the overall average of 14 percent, including management at 7 percent and production at 4 percent.
