Guess 3:

literally, guessing

Slides: http://bit.ly/how-many-rses2020

Percentage of "people who do RSE but aren't always called RSEs" to researchers

 

1%?

5%?

33%?

There are around 220,000 academics in the UK, so...

 

        1%        - 2,200 RSEs  

        5%       - 11,000 RSEs

        33%     - 72,000 RSEs 

Guess 4:

Slides: http://bit.ly/how-many-rses2020

http://rsejobs.trenozoic.net/#hcontract

Mean = 0.13

13% of all UK academics

gives us 28,000 RSEs

Let's be conservative:

14,000 people doing RSE work in the UK

Worldwide?
