Do you know how many QC bench chemists there are in the pharmaceutical industry by country?I will offer a fine prize* to whomever can come up with the best answer (I will be the final judge).
I approach this as a "Fermi question." Here's my 30-seconds-of-thought answer: find the number of actual chemical manufacturing subsector employees, the number of QC bench chemists will be no larger than 5% of that number.
