A US centric view as usual. Any chance of broadening the view ?

I'm surprised that big pharma is not more represented. Do you consider bioinformatics as a subdomain of datascience? We might also discover that a number of the datascience jobs for big Pharma are going overseas which would also be interesting to note.

Some data scientists have a different job title, such as analyst or statistician. They are more likely to be found working for government agencies or the military.
