DataLA, the Los Angeles mayor's data team, is partnering with LinkedIn to collect anonymized data on the tech talent in their city. Of the "5.2 million workers in the greater Los Angeles region who have LinkedIn profiles... 244,000 (5%) self-identify as part of the tech workforce."
LinkedIn provided anonymized member information to analysts at DataLA.
"The findings are part of a preliminary phase of research that will result in a comprehensive report on the status of Los Angeles’ tech talent pipeline." Ultimately the report will serve to "inform the strategic plan of the City’s Workforce Development Board and Economic and Workforce Development Department (EWDD), local community colleges, and other local educational institutions."
