The 2022 WordPress Survey is now open to anyone using WordPress – from beginners to professional developers and everyone in between. This annual survey helps project leaders and contributors learn more about how and why the software is being used.
This year’s survey is available in the seven most frequently installed languages based on the number of WordPress downloads, including French, German, Italian, Japanese, Russian, and Spanish.
The survey begins with some questions about basic demographics and moves on to a mix of interesting questions that fall more under the topic of market research than previous years. It asks why you use WordPress instead of other tools/platforms, what you think are the most essential three plugins when building sites, and what are the best and most frustrating things about WordPress. The survey also asks whether respondents have used blocks in the new Site Editor and which Site Editor they prefer. It will be interesting to see the data from these questions.
The last eight questions are for contributors, and even with those it takes less than five minutes to complete. Although some information from the 2022 survey may be shared in the annual State of the Word address, the survey will be open through the end of 2022.
The analysis from the 2021 survey results will be shared in early 2023 and WordPress will publish the 2022 results sometime next year.
Took me about 10 minutes to complete without the contributor element. Looking forward to the results
