  • By Developer.com Staff

According to a new report from Software.org, software development and distribution generates $1.14 trillion for the national economy, as well as supporting more than 10 million jobs. In addition, the software industry is growing faster than the economy as a whole, the report said. While the overall economy grew 6.7 percent in the last two years, software's economic impact increased 18.7 percent.
