Personally I’m not so sure.

I’ve commented before about surveys. They’re potentially unreliable because it depends so much on which companies were in the sample.

Maybe they surveyed similar companies? Maybe the surveyed companies had adopted agile development in small pockets before and now it’s mainstream?

In reality, I think it’s very hard to judge.
