The 2008 Rexer Analytics Data Mining Survey

(Posted by guest blogger, James Taylor)

Karl Rexer sent me this year's Data Mining Survey and asked me to ask my readers to please participate in it this year. Last year he got some great results which I discussed on the blog.  Rexer Analytics is a data mining consulting firm conducting a second annual survey of the analytic behaviors, views and preferences of data mining professionals. Karl's email said:

In designing this year’s survey, we incorporated many suggestions from the excellent feedback we received from last year’s participants.   If you participated in last year’s survey you will find that this year’s survey is a little longer, but we hope that the added length will pay off in significantly enriched results.
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. 

If you have questions you can email Karl at directly.

To participate, please click here and enter the access code T59W2 in the space provided.

The survey should take approximately 15 minutes to complete.
