The computer industry is the most liked business sector by Americans, according to a recent report from Gallup.

The report was based on data from a Gallup poll conducted in August 2015 of a random sample 1,011 adults from all 50 US states and the District of Columbia.

Some 69% of respondents say have a positive view of the computer industry, and only 10% say they have a negative view.

Other industries with high net scores (positive rating minus negative) are the restaurant, Internet, grocery, farming, travel, accounting, and retail sectors.

The federal government is the least liked sector (-29 net score), and the oil and gas industry is the second least liked (-13).

Despite its low rating, consumers' view of the oil and gas industry has actually improved markedly over the past few years; in 2012 only 22% said they had a positive view of the industry, compared with 34% this year.
