  1. Is the raw table of data available? I would be highly interested in looking at it myself.

  3. Will this become available on www.visualizing.org? This request may be an addition to the #1 “raw” request. Thank you, ala!

  5. One of the charts in section 4 confusingly doesn’t match the structure of the others and is therefore hard to interpret—it looks the same visually, but the data on figure 4.6 was plotted differently. All the other “Satisfaction by X” charts show “x” down the left side: The labels on “4.5 Satisfaction by Age Range” indicate ages; likewise, “4.7 Satisfaction by Geographic Region” quite reasonably lists geographic locations. However, the chart in between them, “4.6 Satisfaction by gender,”  shows levels of satisfaction down the left rather than gender. In other words, figure 4.6 is actually showing “Gender by Satisfaction”, which isn’t nearly as meaningful as satisfaction by gender would be.

  6. While the graphs are great every year, would love to timeline the results you’ve created over the last few years and be able to move a slider and watch results change.

  9. Thanks for putting this together. As mentioned previously it would be nice to see a timeline over the years to get a better understanding of how things have shifted, as it’s a bit hard to get a feel from referencing past years numbers.

  10. Great use of Web Standards for visualization. Wilson Miner would be proud. I spotted a typo at http://aneventapart.com/alasurvey2010/01.html
    Fig. 1.5 Percentage of job-title holders who earn salaries of $100k+ “A significantly greater percentage of Information Architects, Usability Experts, Creative Directors, Information Architects, Accessibility Experts, and Web Directors make more than $100,000.” “Information Architects” repeated twice.
