Little contemporary data exists on the actual practices of software professionals for software requirements elicitation, requirements specification document development, and specification validation. The authors conducted an exploratory survey of several hundred software and systems practitioners and obtained results from 194 respondents. This article reports quantitative results for the purposes of further interpretation and comparison with other available data.
