Some job and industry categories are not available from the BLS, and there tends to be higher volatility in monthly data. CompTIA’s definition of core IT occupations excludes knowledge worker positions, such as graphic designers, technical sales, or business analysts. The Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) is the not-for-profit trade association of the information technology (IT) industry and workforce. CompTIA serves the industry and the IT workforce through best-in-class training, credentials, research, public policy, and events. Contact research@comptia.org with questions.
