More Information About This Project

This paper, part of a series prepared for the California Report on the Environment for Science and Technology (CREST), assesses the supply and demand of skilled labor for the science and technology industries of California. This report examines employment and wages in biotechnology, aerospace, computers and electronics in addition to software and computer related services.

The first comprehensive assessment of the state’s science and technology indicators, CREST draws on extensive research and analysis and offers recommendations for how industry leaders, academic planners, and state policy makers can respond more effectively to a high-tech economy. CREST addresses the absence of a regularly executed strategic planning process for the California economy by providing essential information upon which strategic and tactical decisions can be based.
