The Experiences of Intersex Respondents in the 2014 Ace Community Census

Happy Intersex Awareness Day! And Happy Asexual Awareness Week! We took a deeper look at intersex statistics from our 2014 Ace Community Census and are excited to share with you the 2014 Ace Community Census Report on the Experiences of Intersex Respondents.

This report focuses on the experiences of ace respondents who identified as intersex and ace respondents who indicated that they might be intersex, are waiting for test results, have a diagnosis that sometimes is considered intersex, and other explicitly stated reasons.

While the question of whether or not someone was intersex was originally asked in the 2014 survey, its distributions were not reported on in the 2014 AVEN Community Census: Preliminary Findings report. We are glad we can share them with you now.

Summary Findings from the 2015 Ace Community Census

Happy Asexual Awareness Week! We are excited to share with you the summary results from the 2015 census.

We know it has been a long time coming, but we have considerably more volunteers as of very recently and should be able to get reports out faster in the future. One of the main reasons this report took so long is that we back coded, or read through and included all write in responses where we could. This is time intensive and should be more manageable with a larger number of volunteers. You might also notice that this report is a bit longer than 2014, which also took additional time.

There are additional data analysis and blog posts that we hope to get to to dig deeper. If you a researcher you can also request the data itself.

Also, many thanks to everyone who took the survey! We couldn’t have done it without you.

Update: the 2017 Census is now closed. Thank you to everyone who participated! Check back in late October of 2018 for next year’s census.

It’s that time of year again – we are now recruiting participants for the Ace Community Census!

The Ace Community Census is an annual survey by the Ace Community Survey Team, which collects valuable information on the demographics and experiences of members in the ace community. It is the largest survey of ace communities and creates a valuable pool of data for future ace community activists and researchers.

The survey is open to anyone: ace, non-ace, or still questioning; as long as you are 13 years of age or older we want to hear from you! We want to get a wide variety of responses from as many parts of the community as possible, so we encourage you to share this link with any other potentially interested individuals you know or any ace communities you participate in.
