These are the 12 categories in the BLS Current Population Survey that I added to reach the total. I'll include this list list in future articles on the survey:

Computer and information systems managers
Computer and information research scientists
Computer systems analysts
Information security analysts
Computer programmers
Software developers, applications and systems software
Web developers
Computer support specialists
Database administrators
Network and computer systems administrators
Computer network architects
Computer occupations, all other

Mr. Murphy

Perhaps you would enlighten us as to what the term "IT" is. As far as I know, the BLS has no such occupational group.

Where is the source that supports your claim?

re: U.S. IT Jobs Back To 2008 Levels
The only way that unemployment among tech workers is 4% is to ignore the hundreds of thousands of US STEM workers who have permanently lost their jobs because of the importation of cheap entry level workers from the third world, primarily India and Communist China.

Since 2008, each year there have been hundreds of thousands of workers with work visas, like the H1B visa, the L1 visa, the OPT visa, the B1 visa, and an alphabet soup of other visas, and tech employment is back to 2008 levels? Guess what, those people coming to this country have replaced US STEM workers, many who will likely have been pushed out of their STEM careers for the rest of their life.

The author casually forgot to mention that in this shallow puff piece article.
