Comments from the Editor
This poll focused on the US/Canada data miners not because of any intention to ignore Europe, Asia, and other regions where about 35% of KDnuggets subscribers and many thousands of data miners reside. The main reason is that the current poll mechanism makes it technically difficult to ask more than one question and also because multi-question polls generate much lower response rate.
Non-US/Canada income survey will be done later this year.
Notice also that many data miners are consultants and do not receive a fixed salary -- that is why the term income is used instead of salary.
