Results of the Reader Survey

I was blown away by the response to my survey – I thought we’d be doing well to get 100 surveys back, but after a week almost 1500 had been filled out! It’s wonderful to see that BD’s site is so important to so many people.
I’d say that there are two key findings:
- The typical BD site visitor, if such a thing exists, is a lurker in their late sixties who’s been solving for over thirty years and who visits the blog most days.
- Regular commenters made up only 7% of the total response to the survey, so what you see in the comments each day is just the tip of the BD community iceberg.
Here are charts summarizing the responses to the four questions. Clicking on a chart will open a larger version in a new browser window.
Thanks to everyone who took the time to fill out the survey.
