Subject Keyword 1970 census ♦ Employment ♦ Programmer ♦ Area wage survey
Abstract Data from the 1970 Census and the Department of Labor's Area Wage Surveys are used to derive estimates of the number of full-time programmers employed during the years 1969 through 1973. The 1973 figure of 180,000 is considerably less than suggested in earlier reports. It is recommended that educational administrators consider whether the many courses aimed at training programmers are justified on a vocational basis.
