In addition to usual demographic questions, the Study includes a series of questions about the worker themselves; specifically, their ambitions and behaviors. Everything asked is value neutral and intended only to learn about the people doing this work. Our experience shows that questions beyond traditional demographics are important because they lend insight into the workers themselves vs. meta-data about the workers. We hypothesize these metrics may have more predictive power than education, experience and other more traditional metrics. Results of the Study will be published through IIA upon completion of the study targeted to be by end of this year.
If you’d like to help demonstrate the ability to utilize an analytics approach to find analytics professionals and help analytics move forward as an industry feel free to broadly circulate the following link to the Study. It’s open to both Analytics Managers as well as Analytics Professionals. We look forward to sharing the results with you through IIA.
