Web Design Survey 2007

A List Apart SurveyA List Apart published the findings of their annual survey of web people a couple of weeks ago and I’ve only just had time to read through the lengthy document.

It’s well worth a read for any web professional and they’ve also published anonymous data so you can crunch your own stats but they’ve got some interesting and amusing results. Here’s my highlights:

  • Second most popular method of staying current is “Trial and error”
  • Significant differences in the amount of training given to different jobs – 70% of accessibility and usability experts but under 50% of writers and editors
  • Both of these areas are amongst the rarest claimed skills
  • Project managers are the most satisfied and designers amongst the most unsatisfied 🙂

Take a look and leave a comment with the stats you find interesting!
