STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, MAY 17, 2016.....For each recent graduate with a computing and mathematics degree, the state's technology and computer science fields have 17 jobs openings, a major contributor to the need for more college-educated workers who can fuel the Massachusetts tech economy, according to an industry group report released Tuesday.

In the Massachusetts Technology Leadership Council's third annual "State of the Technology Economy" report, the group that counts 500 companies among its membership said the high tech industry is "a strong, growing pillar" of the state's economy -- directly or indirectly responsible for 35 percent of jobs in the state, 46 percent of the state's total payroll and 31 percent of the gross state product.
