The 2014 survey included 41 of the 43 full-time programming schools in the US, which expect to graduate nearly 6,000 students in 2014. That’s up from around 2,200 graduates (and 33 schools) last year. 

The survey also found that the average bootcamp length is 10.4 weeks, and the average tuition is $9,920:

Programming bootcamps attract a variety of students, from high school grads to college grads to people looking to make a career change. And the industry is formidable: while Course Report estimates that 48,000 undergrads will complete computer science university programs in 2013, programming bootcamps will graduate an impressive 13% as many graduates this year.

To be included, bootcamps had to offer full-time, in-person classes with 40+ hours of work a week (including classes and programming time) in the United States. The survey excludes bootcamps that focus on topics like design, product development, and marketing.
