The animating and graphic artist job sector is looking strong in the US,
according to this new infographic!

Smith Micro expects it to grow by 25.8% in the next 10 years with a focus on the motion picture and video industries, as well as the computer systems design and related services, software publishers, advertising and PR services and other specialised design services. Perhaps the most encouraging statistic is the low unemployment rate of 4.1%, which, compared with the overall United States average of 7.3%, is very promising and reflects the strong growth forecast.

1) Smith Micro Software sells hobby software.
2) What qualifies them to do research of this scale?
3) with all the big studios moving to Vancouver, businesses shutting down, underbidding rampant, etc, what makes them think unemployment is at an all-time low?
4) Is someone trying to boost their sales thru misinformation?
