These questions were shown only to the developers who chose C as one of their three primary programming languages.
Despite all of the measures we've taken to secure a representative pool of respondents, the results may be slightly skewed towards users of JetBrains products, as they are more likely to take the survey.
The percentage of the developers who don’t write unit tests for C has finally decreased after a couple of years and is down to about one-third. Meanwhile, the share of those who write unit tests with no specific framework increased by 5 percentage points.
