The IT Job Outlook Report examines the career data published by state governments and the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics in order to provide a well-rounded understanding of the U.S. demand for positions related to Information Technology. This report offers both a broad and detailed look at where the highest paying jobs are located overall and which areas of every state offer the most and least opportunities for your IT career.

For the purpose of this report, all IT jobs are classified under five broad job categories as identified by the BLS, these categories include:

  • Computer and Information Research Scientists
  • Computer and Information Analysts
  • Software Developers and Programmers
  • Database and Systems Administrators and Network Architects
  • Computer Support Specialists

The report specifies which particular job titles and duties fall under each category as well as the specific growth expected per job. In addition, the report examines the average salaries available throughout every state and for each occupation. While certain states, such as New York and California, are expected to offer higher salaries due to a high cost of living, other states such as Colorado and Minnesota have emerged as some unexpected contestants on the list of top paying states for IT.

The report will look at each state’s cost of living in relation to the overall job outlook including average salaries per position and projected job growth for the state as a whole and for particularly noteworthy areas within the state too.
