Chemical industry professionals believe they've weathered the worst of the economic storm, according to results of Chemical Processing's 2010 Salary and Job Satisfaction survey. This year, 52% (860) of respondents are concerned about job security and 48% (778) are not (Figure1) compared to 58% who were and 42% who were not in the 2009.
How the Data Were Gathered
A total of 1,827 respondents participated in this year's survey. That's second only to 2007 when 1,830 people answered our questions.
Since mid-January, respondents accessed the survey questionnaire via a link listed in the print edition of Chemical Processing, on the www.ChemicalProcessing.com Web site, and in e-newsletters and e-mail blasts sent to readers. Additionally, those who follow Chemical Processing on Twitter at Chem_Processing and Facebook at Chemical Processing Magazine were also encouraged to participate.
