The above link takes you to indeed.com which has a nifty graphing tool for
comparing queries against job posting sites.

IxD titles are the least used out of the ones I selected. I'm sure there are
other titles we could plug in there as well, but I chose
Interaction design
Information architecture
User experience
User interface design (if you left out the design it jumped to the top)
Usability

Interesting tool if nothing else.

Hi David,

I noticed that in inputting title, you used descriptions of job
responsibilities rather than job titles (i.e. "user experience",
"usability", "interaction design"). I tried the search again replacing the
query with title (i.e. user experience designer, interaction designer,
etc...). Check it out:

Certainly an interesting tool then, isn't it. A teacher who taught
statistics in school once warned me about misleading stats. Tufte
talks about something similar doesn't he?

I would be interested to know if there are strategies that allow us to
discover such inconsistencies in data and even better if there are any
graphing tools that catch such semantics. (I guess something like
google's "did you mean" suggestions for search queries.) Is there
anyone who uses statistical data extensively?
