According to a report recently released by the US Department of Commerce, people who don't yet work in some IT-related field in the US have a 50-50 chance of doing so in another six years. The report states that industries that produce IT goods and services grew an average of 10.4% from 1990 to 1997. Goods alone grew at a rate of 23.9%. Given this rate of growth, almost half the US workforce within the next decade will be employed by industries that are either "major producers" or "intensive users" of IT products and services, the report says.
