  4. Very interesting. I would like to see how happiness and money plot out. Also the bias section took up alot of space, what is the bias definition for each chart? it seems that many of the workers, designers-  make less than the managers. I am just learning web design, I am in the 50 plus age group, i want to be part of the exciting world of websites, I am taking classes, trying by doing and reading all I can. Designers should make alot more money. Thanks for the work and results.

  5. Just stumbled on this. Props for putting it together and making it public (even the data)!

    I’d be curious to see if respondents report any education bias: Is not having a college degree, or too high a degree, a hindrance?

  7. I would love to see a survey to focus on some of the data regarding “Years at current job” and “Number of jobs held” and “Next Career Move”.  I would like to see this data to explain why such a high percentage of the development community has limited time at a single employer.  I would also love to see an employer/management survey focusing on the same data of why they feel designers tend to jump ship so often.  Does job stress, constant education, low pay, fierce competition, etc. have anything to do with the career choices?  How many web designers have gone from full time to part time and freelance?  How many developers feel burned out?

  9. like smoking cigarettes cause cancer. But many if not most cancers have nothing to do with how healthily you live your life or how many vegetables you eat or vitamins you take.

  10. it’s just so shocking how homogenous the web industry work force is – in terms of race, gender and age. it’s really awful, shameful.
