    Back in August, a LinkedIn analysis concluded that the United States is facing a significant shortage of data scientists, a big change from a surplus in 2015. This week, job-search firm Indeed reported that its data indicates the shortage is getting worse: while more job seekers are interested in data science jobs, the number of job postings from employers has been rising faster than that number of interested applicants.

    According to Indeed, job postings for data scientists as a share of all postings were up 29 percent in December 2018 compared to December 2017, while searches were only up around 14 percent.
