CrowdFlower 2016 Data Science Report


A new data science report with survey results related to the success and challenges of data scientists, and where data science is going as a discipline.



CrowdFlower 2016 Data Science Report

Earlier this year, we surveyed data scientists from all manner of organizations. We wanted to know what best sets them up for success, what their biggest challenges are, and where they see the discipline evolving in the next five years. We compiled it all in one handy, free report which you download right here.

A few key insights:

  • 83% of data scientists polled feel that shortage of data scientists today
  • 60% said they spent the most time cleaning and organizing data
  • And still, 4 out of 5 data scientists feel really positive about their current gig

The full report has plenty more detail, of course, but we wanted to let you in on some of the findings we found most interesting. Oh, if you're in the field, let us know what we should be asking next time around. We'd appreciate it.
