As of press time, 483 of COMPUTER'S 19,000-odd readers had responded to the reader survey questionnaires we printed in the April issue. It's too soon - and the numbers are still too small - to draw any conclusions. Even so, we think a few trends are beginning to emerge - for example, the surprising preponderance of readers (67%) who classify themselves as users rather than OEMs, and the high percentage (58%) of readers with masters or doctorate degrees (vs. 39% for IEEE as a whole, according to SPECTRUM'S Audience Profile of March 1973). Another inter?? esting trend is the high percentage (60%) of readers under age 35 (vs. 31% for IEEE as a whole, according to SPECTRUM). Here, in any case, are the raw numbers we've accumulated so far. We present them without comment (warts and all) - along with our promise to provide a more thorough analysis in an early issue. For those who are not in the picture yet, here's what we're trying to accomplish by this reader survey: (1) ensure that the magazine reflects your technical interests, and (2) obtain demographic data to substantiate our claims to potential advertisers.
