So, my guess is that the survey results are fixed for this year, but for future years I think it a good idea to further segment "Other Europe". Right now, its percentage (>16%) is higher than any other save the US and I find that number misleading. Alexa.com suggests that Sweden and Austria might both be good candidates.

Not really the most useful feature in the world, but it also is very cheap to implement. –  cwallenpoole May 9 '13 at 14:13

Just put in every country from the ISO 3166-1 list... –  ben is uǝq backwards May 9 '13 at 14:17
    
@benisuǝqbackwards I think that some aggregation will be necessary, but with the Czech Republic ranking above Canada in Alexa's traffic ranks, I wonder if a little less aggregation might be interesting. –  cwallenpoole May 9 '13 at 14:31
    
The Czech Republic is well below Canada in that list @cwallenpoole. More surprising is that South Korea is below Romania, and so is Italy... –  ben is uǝq backwards May 10 '13 at 21:37
    
@benisuǝqbackwards Ah, you're right, I was looking at Stackoverflow.com’s Regional Traffic Ranks which is a very different number –  cwallenpoole May 11 '13 at 1:46

According to this query, Spain (which is also "Other Europe" in the survey) beats Italy (which is "Italy") by a close 4458 users to 4456. To mention other countries you have mentioned, Sweden has 5279 users, beating Spain and Italy; Austria has 1789, and the Czech Republic 1804.

The ten top European countries by users are: (in Bold, the ones which appear as individual countries in the survey)

  1. United Kingdom 25976
  2. Germany 12444
  3. France 7511
  4. Russia 7346
  5. Netherlands 6364
  6. Sweden 5279 ("Other Europe")
  7. Spain 4458 ("Other Europe")
  8. Italy 4456
  9. Poland 4100 ("Other Europe")
  10. Ukraine 3669 ("Other Europe")

I'd suggest to just ask with the full list when the survey is done, and afterwards maybe group the answers. In that way, the Other Europe countries would always be the ones which are not at the top of the list.

I wholeheartedly agree. But would aggregation be significantly more work? –  cwallenpoole May 9 '13 at 16:09
