For the past couple of years, A List Apart has run a survey for those of us who create the Web. They collect stats about location, type of work, etc. It’s quick to take, and the information is helpful. Go take it or view the findings from last year.
Why is it important? Well, personally, I’m just kinda nosey and intrigued by data sets and enjoy seeing what the world of Web dev looks like. According to A List Apart:
We hope that making this data available will have a positive effect on best practices and employment, and will enhance public understanding of, and respect for, our profession.
So go on, and help them out for 2010.
