A new study reveals close to 466,000 jobs have been created in the "App Economy" in United States — up from zero in 2007. The total number of Apps Economy jobs includes jobs at 'pure' app firms such as Zynga as well as app-related jobs at large companies such as Electronic Arts, Amazon, and AT&T, as well as app 'infrastructure' jobs at core firms such as Google, Apple, and Facebook. In addition, the App Economy total includes employment spillovers to the rest of the economy.
The research [PDF] analyzed detailed information from The Conference Board Help-Wanted OnLine (HWOL) database as conventional employment numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics were not suitable to track such a phenomenon as this economic ecosystem is so new.
