Dataset Open Access
Data and accompanying documentation for the Open Source Survey fielded by GitHub and collaborators in 2017. Respondents were sourced via random sampling from traffic to licensed open source repositories on GitHub.com and from invitations sent to selected open source communities that work on other platforms. The files here include a README, a full copy of the (English) questionnaire, notes for working with the data, and two CSV data files. A report based on the subset of responses sampled from GitHub.com is available at http://opensourcesurvey.org/2017/.
See the README for details on sampling methodology, and notes and questionnaire files for question wordings, response options, branching logic, and recoded variables.
