Technical Writing Survey

I can’t remember where I found this, but here are some results from a technical writer survey. I’m not crazy about how they’re presented. In fact, the questions are kind of naff. Still, I was a little surprised to see 13% of people who took the survey out of work.

  1. Yeah, the presentation is abysmal! A number of the graphs didn’t load for me, and several lost their legends (or are they keys?).

    Naff: good word. Had to look it up.

  2. Perhaps their sample is flawed – maybe the employed technical writers don’t have time to fill out surveys like this?
