Random research question:

Does anyone know the revenue structure (distribution) of the US and/or
global SW industry?  IIRC, there are some 7,000 firms represented in the
sector (or in membership organizations such as the organization formerly
known as the SPA).  However, the bulk of revenues, and even more of 
profits, are concentrated in the top 1 percent, and quite possibly the
top 0.5%, of the industry.  Does anyone have hard data on this?

TIA.
