WSO Userbase Demographic Preview

Put up a short poll on a surveymonkey last week to try to get a better idea of where WSO users are concentrated in the US and the world. Think Andy might run an official poll on this in the coming weeks, but thought I'd share the small sample of answers I got. Was interesting to see 38.1% of the sample came from outside the main US and world finance hubs I had listed.

Results (City/ %/ # of responses)

Total responses: 42

Boston 2.4% 1
Charlotte 4.8% 2
Chicago 19.0% 8
Hong Kong 0.0% 0
Houston 2.4% 1
London 4.8% 2
Minneapolis 2.4% 1
New York City 23.8% 10
San Francisco 2.4% 1
Shanghai 0.0% 0
Singapore 0.0% 0
Tokyo 0.0% 0

Other/write-in 38.1% 16 (write-in entries below)

2 Los Angeles
2 Atlanta
Pune, India
Omaha
Stamford
Tampa
Washington, D.C.
Frankfurt
Philadelphia
Buenos Aires

Will be interesting to see the results with a larger sample.
