According to Glassdoor here a computer programmer earns between $56k (USD) and $83k (USD) at the top end. I am sure where people fall in the range is dependent upon company size (larger companies can sometime have more resource to pay higher salaries), location, and experience.

Computer Programmers earn on average slightly less than Software Developers/Engineers who instead earn between $58k (USD) and $112k (USD) at the top end also according to Glassdoor here.

If you would like to find out more between what a computer programmer is vs. a software developer this is a great post: https://www.careervillage.org/questions/1929/whats-the-difference-between-a-computer-programmer-and-a-software-engineer (Greg's answer is a good overview).

Hope this helps!

O*net online may provide some helpful information and it also provides technology skills, education, salary, etc.. to go along with the career path. Use keyword search & look for the "bright outlook" icon or explore via the "Rapid Growth" drop down.

The O*NET Program is the nation's primary source of occupational information. Central to the project is the O*NET database, containing hundreds of standardized and occupation-specific descriptors on almost 1,000 occupations covering the entire U.S. economy. The database, which is available to the public at no cost, is continually updated from input by a broad range of workers in each occupation. The Occupational Information Network (O*NET) is developed under the sponsorship of the U.S. Department of Labor/Employment and Training Administration
