We're on a journey to improve EDI in the software industry

Here's where we are on that journey.

We have gathered and will share anonymized employee demographic data as appropriate. That means if an employee does not want to have their data disclosed—even in anonymized form—we will not include their data in the numbers we share. It also means that the base will vary from survey to survey.

So what's the U.S. market average?

It's complicated. Test Double uses sources including Bloomberg, Builtin, Data USA, and Information Is Beautiful to determine the market. Even so, reliable data is hard to find. Many companies do not report this data, current data is difficult to attain, and/or reporting is lacking—such as gender data beyond binary male/female. From those sources, here's a rough U.S. market average we are benchmarking against currently:

Gender
  • ~80% male
  • ~14-20% female
Race
  • 7% Black/African American
  • 5% Hispanic
  • 29% Asian
