Hello Krishna,

I have not seen any "official" statement of the proper ratio.
But I did read an article that said, in general, an organization should
have one tech writer per eight developers or engineers. Asking around my
STC chapter and in tech writing classes, it seems that one writer per 15
to 30 developers or engineers is more common. At my company, I am the
lone writer supporting 80 developers.

Subject: How many writers/engineer


I work for a semiconductor company in Silicon valley and my manager
asked me 
to find out the following:

"Are there are any stats regarding how many writers per engineer various

companies and industries have?"

Frankly, I don't know where to start from and would appreciate your help

with an answer.
