This book offers an in-depth look at IT workers — where they work and what they do — and the policy issues they inspire. It also illuminates numerous areas that have been questioned in political debates:
- Where do people in IT jobs come from, and what kind of education and training matter most for them?
- Are employers' and workers' experiences similar or different in various parts of the country?
- How do citizens of other countries factor into the U.S. IT workforce?
- What do we know about IT career paths, and what does that imply for IT workers as they age? And can we measure what matters?
