I tried taking it but I found it wasn't very well thought out.. The very first question just assumes I work in a company. I bet a considerable percentage of us are students, do this for a hobby, are unemployed or are self employed. Assuming that every single person that takes the survey works for a company is ridiculous. – Andreas Bonini Jan 23 '10 at 19:35
It is, however, absolutely typical for this kind of survey. I guess the idea is for the ad network to be able to boast “30% of our users make purchasing decisions for companies of 500 employees!” which sounds great to advertisers. They don't want the students and one-man-banders messing up those stats! – bobince Jan 24 '10 at 13:49
Oh, just to be clear, I didn’t mean the question as a complaint — I just wasn’t entirely sure the survey was actually affiliated with Stack Overflow, as I hadn’t heard anything about a survey, and it seemed a little odd to link to the survey from an advert. – Paul D. Waite Feb 2 '10 at 19:34

Yes, it's something Alex / Inedo did, and they are our official advertising partners.
