There are some interesting observations in this report.

http://cra.org/cra-releases-report-surge-computer-science-enrollments/

> “the number of CS majors enrolled at doctoral-granting units has more than tripled since 2006”

(Here at BU CS it has grown by a factor of five over that period.)

> "furthermore, the data indicates that continued growth is likely.”

As Azer and John can attest, the conclusions of this report largely captures the essence of discussions at last summer’s CRA Snowbird conference.   However it is backed up on the quantitative side by survey data.

Best,
Mark
