QA Analysts in the US
Hi, I'm doing some research on QA Analysts market size in the US and would like to know how many QA's are in the country. Does anybody know where I could get this info? Thanks!
There's no accurate way of finding out this number. (somewhat out of the scope of this forum)

Most shops run between 3-1 to 6-1 developers to QA depending on how much automation is in place. Small startups may run 0 QA for the first year while getting their product started. You might want to come up with a number you think represents the typical average median case, then you get an estimate of how many QA there are in the US.
To find the market size from there, multiple it the average QA salary, and keeping in mind that perhaps for every 15 (on average), there is one QA manager.

No one can tell you the exact amount. You should explorer the linkedin profiles to have the list of QA experts.
