RStudio is fielding our second annual R Community Survey (previously named the R Learner Survey) to better understand how and why people learn the R language. We encourage anyone who is interested in learning R or has learned R over any period of time to respond. The survey should only require 5 to 10 minutes to complete, depending on how little or how much information you choose to share with us. You can find the survey here:
If you have an interest in R, but haven't learned it yet, that's fine too! The survey has specific questions for you, and your responses will help us better understand how we can be more encouraging to you and others like you. And this year we've added questions on R Markdown, Shiny, and Python to understand the use of those technologies in 2020
Data and analysis of of the 2018 data can be found on github at https://github.com/rstudio/learning-r-survey in the 2018/ folder. Results from the 2019 survey will also be posted in that github repo after the survey closes in February 2020.
Please ask your students, Twitter followers, Ultimate Frisbee team, and anyone else interested in R to complete the survey. Your promotional efforts could help R educators and users understand and grow our community.
You will find a full disclosure of what information will be collected and how it will be used on the first page of the survey. The survey does not collect personally identifiable information nor email addresses, but it does have optional demographic questions.
Thank you in advance for your consideration and time!
