    This is a perfect example of dumb data. This data shows just one fact – that Indians on LinkedIn are overwhelmingly technology professionals. Very few Indians outside the tech world are registered as LinkedIn members. That’s the reason for the high percentages.

      Sanjeev, In this case you are actually absolutely right. The data is skewed because it takes into account only Linkedin members who are obviously Tech and hence those numbers. But, within the tech community, I think the data seems to be in line with reality..
