The OTW’s 2012 Community Survey report is now available

Last year the OTW ran a large survey to collect information from its user community about their use of our projects and awareness of our activities. There were 5,895 people who answered. Some early results were reported in the Survey Sunday posts on OTW News.

A report of all the survey results is now complete and is available as a single report (5.65 MB PDF). Given that the survey contained 89 questions and all questions have one or more graphs, this is a long document (183 pages in all). However, it is broken down into sections for the various projects and also includes a cross-tabulated section. We hope it will make for an interesting read!

For those who are interested, here is a look at the table of contents:
