The Indeed job-search site said data scientist job postings from U.S. employers continue to outnumber interested applicants, with the former rising 29% last month year-over-year, compared to a 14% uptick in the latter.

As a result, Indeed economist Andrew Flowers said, "The bargaining power in data science remains with the job seekers."

Indeed characterized data scientists as persons who usually hold degrees in computer science, statistics, or a quantitative social science, as well as having trained in statistical modeling, machine learning, and programming.

Also noted was an increase in salaries for data scientists, with Indeed estimating the average salary in the area surrounding Houston, which topped last year's list, rose 16.5% over the previous year.

Average pay for data scientists in the San Francisco Bay Area, the list's second-ranked metropolitan area, climbed 3.7%.
