A CIO Insight analysis of government data reveals that payrolls among the nation's producers of computer hardware, software and services didn't keep up with overall job growth over the past five years.

Methodology

Each month the Bureau of Labor Statistics analyzes payroll records from some 160,000 businesses and government agencies covering about 400,000 individual worksites. The active sample includes about one-third of all nonfarm payroll workers. The sample is drawn from a sampling frame of unemployment insurance tax accounts.

All payroll figures are for May of given year; 2007 figures are preliminary.
