Growing need for data heads  US will need 140,000 to 190,000 more people with “deep analytical” and data analysis skills. A bigger more surprising number is  the  need for 1.5 million more data-literate managers.  Now let me go and Google ‘data literate managers’. From indeed.com:

Data Literate Managers jobs nationwide (about 1,704 jobs).
Data Literate jobs nationwide (about 4,827 jobs).
