New report rates Washington at the top of booming applicaiton economy!

Thanks to the app economy, 519,000 jobs were created

Today, CTIA and the Application Developers Alliance released a report that found the app economy created 519,000 jobs across the country.

While the top 10 app economy job states may not be surprising, the economic impact must have been welcomed by all of these states. The figure next to each state is the economic impact, per million, each year:

  1. California = $8,241
  2. Washington = $2,671
  3. New York = $2,313
  4. Texas = $1,183
  5. Massachusetts = $1,143
  6. New Jersey = $1,087
  7. Georgia = $1,062
  8. Illinois = $847
  9. Virginia  = $788
  10. Pennsylvania = $632

But what may be surprising is the “app intensity” of states, which is the percentage of app economy jobs compared to the total number of jobs in the state. The national “app intensity” average was 1.

  1. Washington = 4.47
  2. California = 2.71
  3. Massachusetts = 1.71
  4. Oregon = 1.70
  5. Georgia = 1.56
  6. New Jersey = 1.29
  7. New York = 1.16
  8. Virginia = 1.04
  9. Delaware = 0.93
  10. Colorado = 0.90
