Data Scientists


Employment of computer and information research scientists (a category that includes data scientists) is expected to grow 16 percent from 2018 to 2028, according to the Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH), or much faster than the average for all careers. The U.S. Department of Labor reports that “rapid growth in data collection by businesses will lead to an increased need for data-mining services. Computer scientists will be needed to write algorithms that help businesses make sense of very large amounts of data. With this information, businesses understand their consumers better, making the work of computer and information research scientists increasingly vital.”
