Georgia's Total Annual Technology Payroll
Georgia's total annual technology payroll rebounded in 2011 to $20.56 billion. Prior to the rebound last year, it had declined each year since establishing a peak in 2007. The rebound in payroll reflects the compound effect of an increasing number of technology workers hired and an increase in the amount of average wages paid. The total technology payroll represents a significant economic contributor to Georgia's overall economy as reflected by the sector's overall economic impact in the state.
