I plan to conduct a research study about Interaction Designers.

Prior to starting on sampling methods I am finding it very hard to get my hands on some demographics and statistics, e.g. How many people are registered to be employed as Interaction Designers, User Experience Designers etc. in a particular territory (UK in my case).

Any help regarding this would be highly appreciated.

  • $\begingroup$ Is your question, simply, how many people are employed as an interaction designer in the United Kingdom? or are you asking something more about sampling procedures? $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 6, 2011 at 6:03
  • $\begingroup$ Well this question is designed to help me develop my sampling method. But prior to that I want to have an idea about how many people are there in total with that job title in a given territory. $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 7, 2011 at 16:26

    $\begingroup$ I haven't really looked into this, but one imagines that linkedin and specifically looking at the membership totals for UX UI groups on Linkedin would be helpful $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 5, 2013 at 18:39

The recent census (27/March/2011) in the UK had "full and specific job title" as personal question #34. So the Office for National Statistics must have information on this.

One of the problems of a national census is that it takes a long time to get all the data together so it may be a while until it appears but if you want census data try https://www.census.ac.uk
