: Attached are a few slides that show the highlights of the 2010 Data Miner Survey Results (4th annual survey). Last week I presented these slides, unveiling this year's results, in DC at the Predictive Analytics World conference.
Over the next few weeks we will finish writing the full report, and we'll distribute it in November.
One of the new areas the survey explored in 2010 was to ask data miners for their "Best Practices" in how they address some of the persistent challenges that data miners face:
* Dirty Data
* Explaining data mining to others
* Difficult access to data
In November we will post these "Best Practices" on our website.
Please let us know if you have any questions about this research.
