It seems that contesters are very fond of CW.  Apparently, about 67% of all contesters use CW:

There was a South African who compared the "QSO's per hour" of SSB and CW contesters.  They were pretty close -- maybe the CW guys were higher.

I think the reference to his work is on the FISTS website.

With a 10 dB (or so) S/N ratio advantage, and lots more signals fitting into limited bandwidth, CW makes lots of sense.
