Dozens of job types and millions of positions pay $40 an hour or more, but many don't have the word data in the title.
The key is that the occupations lean heavily on three activities, according to the report:
- "Analyzing data or information: identifying the underlying principles, reasons, or facts of information by breaking down information or data into separate parts."
- "Processing information: compiling, coding, categorizing, calculating, tabulating, auditing, or verifying information or data."
- "Interacting with computers: using computers and computer systems (including hardware and software) to program, write software, set up functions, enter data, or process information."
