    These could be a starting point, I dont think you get an accurate figure though, some people might not be registered…some may do it part time etc…

    don’t know of any sites listing that kind of info specifically for audio folks…. but I can tell you the market is flooded for audio and sound people, particularly freelancers

    After artists, they are the most numerous in search of industry jobs

    Just pop over to game dev, and post for a programmer. If previous experience has thought me anything you should expect about 10 audio designers applying.

    Or you could post looking specifically for audio designers.
