As you all know statistics about how many people are SCJP, SCJD and SCJA is confident. I couldn't find any number about it in the Internet but two days ago it was a SUN's conference in Israel and I asked local education manager about it. She told me that there are more than 1000 SCJP, about 200 SCJD and less than 10 SCJA in Israel. This information is not official but it shows some correspondence btw. all 3 serts. Number of SCJP is so big 'cause a lot of teaching companies that makes JAva cources include preparation to SCJP into their cources. And anyhow this sert. is almost piece of cace. Besides that I asked a guy from SUN's office in the States (one of SUN's gurus) about value of these certifications and he answered that SCJD mentioned in someone's resume enforces him to think about its owner and SCJA almost unambiguously influences upon invitation to a interview.

I don't quite understand what does that mean. "Think about its owner." Is that good or Bad? and does it mean he always interviews SCJAs?
Thanks
Mark

IT exactly means that he always interviews SCJA and owners of SCJD have bigger chance to get interview invitation than peoplpe without it.

Well, this is a really rough stab, but...
There are 49x as many people in the U.S. as opposed to Isreal accoring to 2000 census figures. Based on this multiple alone (and there are lots of other circumstances that ought to be considered to achieve greater accuracy) there are 49000 SCJPs, 9800 SCJDs and 490 SCJAs in the U.S.
Gads! My SCJP doesn't seem all that cool anymore Better keep studying for the others.

I guess a more accurate assessment would be a comparison btwn the number of Java developers in Israel and USA.

Interpolation from Israel to the States is not correct. Going by this direction u may surmize that in China about a million of SCJP? :-)
I guess that correlation btw. SCJP/SCJD/SCJA is more or less the same over the world.
Regarding Israel hitech I found one article that may be interesting to read:

...there are 49000 SCJPs, 9800 SCJDs and 490 SCJAs in the U.S.

Sun has recensed 400-500 SCEA WORLDWIDE !!
Let's be honest one second...certification (even if you are fully SCPJ, SCDJ, SCWD, SCEA) doesn't help to get a job ....actually employers are looking for experienced people first !
Anyway, if you are job seeker, it is the good moment to use your spare time to improve your knowledge by passing certification....

Just 500 EAs worldwide? Sounds low. That'd mean that I know nearly 2% of them. Seems like there's more than 500. Just me guessing...
