How many coders in the USA?


And how many are website type coders? i am assuming there are other types of coders. What is the growth rate?


I thought some people might have already investigated it and know the answers off the top of their head. I estimate about 200k web developers which means FCC has a great impact since, from what I read here, 14k of the new hires are from FCC.


I think I found the answer in USA news:

"The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects about 27 percent employment
growth for web developers by 2024. During that period, about 39,500 new
jobs will need to be filled in an industry that already has roughly
148,500 positions. "

That is 5700 new openings per year! Very fast growing job category!
