Average salaries and unemployment rates for computer and IT occupations, 1992–2011

Note: The list of Computer and IT occupations was expanded considerably for the Current Population Survey in 2002, so that continuous data on the set of occupations currently identified as IT occupations can only go back to 2002. Some major computer and IT categories, such as "programmers," are available before 2002. Data on these workers are included to provide a longer data series for comparison purposes.
