I'd like to cite this survey: https://insights.stackoverflow.com/survey/2018/

Should I cite this as a report or a regular Web page? Also, who should I put down as the author of the page/report?

Clicking on the 'share to Google' link at the bottom gives this text: "Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2018", and a suggested post. It is a report on the results of the developer survey of 2018 presented on a webpage.

You can access the raw data and create your own report, the database is covered by the "Open Database License (ODbL) v1.0". Moderator animuson informs me that the data in the database is not covered by the cc by-sa 3.0, only the ODbL.

    Creative Commons doesn't apply to the developer survey results in any way. Only the ODbL. – animuson Sep 4 '18 at 3:07
  • @animuson - Thank you. I'll update the answer. I thought all information collected from users was covered by CC, and thus the survey is also bound by it. – Rob Sep 4 '18 at 3:22
  • @Rob Everything posted by users to parts of the network falls under CC, the survey isn't considered part of the network. That's why. – Mast Sep 4 '18 at 6:37
