Jobs in US Tech-Sector – About 3.9 million workers, roughly 3% of the nation’s payroll workforce

To get a sense of the Web’s impact on employment, we analyzed data from the Occupational Employment Statistics program, a joint federal-state effort to catalog the structure and compensation of the nation’s workforce. The program sorts wage and salary workers into some 800 different occupations, from CEOs to short-order cooks. Twice a year, the program collects payroll data from about 200,000 employers; each set of occupational estimates combines the six most recent semiannual panels, for a total of 1.2 million establishments. (Though, it’s important to note that the data exclude self-employed workers.)

The most recent estimates, released nearly a year ago and based on data collected from November 2009 to May 2012, indicate that about 3.9 million workers — roughly 3% of the nation’s payroll workforce — work in what we might think of as “core” tech occupations — not people who simply use computing technology in their jobs, but whose jobs involve making that technology work for the rest of us. (We excluded occupations involving the installation and repair of telecommunications lines and equipment, as well as computer repairers.)
