Here's the function in the badges plugin that is adapted from the core; it checks whether all fields are filled out, but of course you can do other things with the info:

        function check_user_fields($userid,$params) {
            list($useraccount, $userprofile, $userfields)=qa_db_select_with_pending(
                qa_db_user_account_selectspec($userid, true),
                qa_db_user_profile_selectspec($userid, true),
            // avatar badge
            if (qa_opt('avatar_allow_upload') && isset($useraccount['avatarblobid'])) {
                $badges = array('avatar');
                qa_badge_award_check($badges, false, $userid);                
            // profile completion
            $missing = false;
            foreach ($userfields as $userfield) {
                if(!$userprofile[$userfield['title']]) {
                    $missing = true;
            if(!$missing) {
                $badges = array('profiler');
                qa_badge_award_check($badges, false, $userid);
