I'm writing a paper on the bioscience industry. My biggest problem so far has been defining the scope of my research. Specifically, biotechnology seems to have a much narrower scope than bioscience but I'm not sure how to precisely define either of those terms.
For example, BIO states
that there are 1.2 million direct jobs in bioscience
in the U.S., but Ernst and Young, on pg.22 of this recent report
, states that there are about 135,000 employees in biotechnology
I also see life science often used, which I think is the equivalent of bioscience.
Also, if anyone has knows good data resources aside from EY, BIO, BLS on this stuff I'd love to hear about that as well.
