Unfortunately the STC survey already stretches itself too thin with the
divisions it makes right now. As it is there aren't enough respondants to make
the survey statistically relevant in most of the categories that it reports
Another huge hole (and uncorrectable until hundreds more data points are added)
is an aid to interpret and combine the data collected. For example: how much
should a lone writer with a higher degree be paid in a small company in this
location. To make this kind of analysis the responses would have to be higher to
the point that each category had a statistically relevant number of respondants
in each other category.
