Wikipedia editor survey: Top-line data released

Last week we released the very first insights from the recent semi-annual survey of Wikipedia editors.  This week we’re releasing the survey’s top-line data.

The top-line data includes all of the major indications from the survey of editors: the demographics, questions proposed in the survey, and top-line responses.  We’re sharing this information now in order to allow the community to review the results, share them, and reflect on the data.

We will continue to share insights from the data over the next few weeks, as well as the entire dataset (which we’re in the process of anonymizing).  We will also be releasing a full survey report on-wiki that details the findings and observations, and reflects on how the insights impact the Wikimedia movement.

(This is the second in a series of blog posts where we will share insights from the April 2011 Editors Survey.)

In all seriousness, it would be a very good to use Wikimarkup for reporting Wikimedia sponsored research. Unfortunately, past experience shows that many or most outside researchers are not particularly Wikiliterate.

Maybe CSV or Google Docs spreadsheet would be better for this than a PDF?

Seriously, format the table so the “%” doesn’t wrap wround!
