The WordPress 2014 survey is now available. Anyone who uses WordPress in any capacity is encouraged to take this short survey to help improve the project. The questions take approximately five minutes to complete and participation is anonymized. WordPress does not collect your email address or IP address, so feel free to offer your sincere feedback.

The survey asks how you use WordPress and helps the project learn more about how the community uses the software to power their websites. The feedback that you supply will help the core team make decisions for the coming year.

Results of the survey will be shared at WordCamp San Francisco during the State of the Word address in October. Tickets for the event are on sale now if you want to be in attendance to hear the results live.

Last year, 30,000 people in 178 countries took the survey. Results revealed that 69% of those surveyed use WordPress as primarily as a CMS; 20% use it as a blog/CMS combo; 6% for blogging only; and 7% as an application platform. Mobile usage data from the survey showed that 30-31% are using WordPress on iOS or Android devices.

Around this time last year, 18.9% of the web was powered by WordPress. That percentage has shot up this year to more than 23%.

We’ll be reporting live from WordCamp San Francisco to bring you all the latest data about WordPress users around the world. Any predictions for a change in CMS vs blog usage and mobile usage for 2014?

    Only takes a few mins and if it helps decide which direction is moving in…

    I notice the question about auto updates for plugins and the “what is your bigest peeve about WordPress?”

    My peeves were speed of sites compared to raw html sites, updates and constant security issues.
