Now that this is the "Professional Surveys" section, I think you have to drop the "42" option, or the Moderators will move you to one of the "fluff" sections.

Just a habit.
Plus, I wrote a few things about those not having one, so I have to practice what I preach. On this.

I am amazed that there are more credentialed posters than students so far, no wait they probably do have more web browsing time

Too bad a "double Fellowship" (FSA and FCAS) wasn't an option, just so we'd know...

ACAS (which will hopefully change soon!), ASA (pre-1995), MAAA

altho, I figured the MAAA was kind of obvious that if you were at least an associate or either, or an EA, you were probably a MAAA, so I don't think you should count "ACAS, MAAA" as 2 designations for this poll. but that's just me.

In 99% of cases, you're not MAAA without at least one of those 5 designations. So, I ignored it. If it's all you are, there is an option.

The poll shows that actuaries and students alike are using this forum. I'm not looking for exact classifications, but I wanted to see the breakdown by SOA vs CAS, Fellow vs Associate.
