Rexer Analytics Data Mining Survey

Calling all data miners! I encourage all to fill out the survey--it is the most complete survey of the data mining world that I am aware of. Use the link and code below, and stay tuned to see the results later in the year.

Survey Link:
Access Code:  RS2458

The full description sent by Karl Rexer is below:

Rexer Analytics, a data mining consulting firm, is conducting our fourth annual survey of the analytic behaviors, views and preferences of data mining professionals.  We would greatly appreciate it if you would:

1)       Participate in this survey, and
2)       Tell other data miners about the survey (forward this email to them).

Thank you.  Forwarding the survey to others is invaluable for our “snowball sample methodology”.  It helps the survey reach a wide and diverse group of data miners.   Thank you also to everyone who participated in previous Data Miner Surveys, and especially to the people who provided suggestions for new questions and other survey modifications.  This year’s survey incorporates many ideas from survey participants.

Your responses are completely confidential: no information you provide on the survey will be shared with anyone outside of Rexer Analytics.  All reporting of the survey findings will be done in the aggregate, and no findings will be written in such a way as to identify any of the participants.  This research is not being conducted for any third party, but is solely for the purpose of Rexer Analytics to disseminate the findings throughout the data mining community via publication, conference presentations, and personal contact. 

If you would like a summary of last year’s or this year’s findings emailed to you, there will be a place at the end of the survey to leave your email address.  You can also email us directly ( if you have any questions about this research or to request research summaries.

To participate, please click on the link below and enter the access code in the space provided.  The survey should take approximately 20 minutes to complete.  Anyone who has had this email forwarded to them should use the access code in the forwarded email.
