March 25, 2010 – Rexer Analytics announced this week the results of the Third Annual Data Miner Survey, which assessed the experiences, priorities, views and challenges of 710 respondents from the data mining community through an online survey. Results showed that most data miners feel that the economy will not negatively impact them, and almost half of industry data miners rate the analytic capabilities of their company as above average or excellent. The study was conducted in 2009 as a service to the data mining community and was not sponsored by any third party.

Rexer Analytics found that when asked what would happen if economic slump continued, only 28 percent of respondents thought the number of data mining projects would decrease. “Data miners were optimistic,” says Karl Rexer, president of Rexer Analytics. “This speaks to the strength of the data mining field and the importance that companies are placing on data mining.”
