Tech-related jobs pay more and are growing at a faster pace than those in other sectors, according to a new report from the Association for a Better New York, Google, Citi and the New York Tech Meetup.

The study found that tech-related jobs pay 49 percent more than the average citywide hourly wage.

Tech-related jobs represent 7 percent of the city's working population but generate more than 12 percent of the city's tax revenue.

The report suggested that the city increase training for those jobs and boost computer literacy in the public school curriculum.
