Take the 2016 Ace Community Census!

Update: The 2016 Ace Community Census is now complete. Thank you everyone for participating!

Please check this site for updates as results are released, and we hope to see you again next year!


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 Asexual Visibility and Education Network which collects valuable information on the demographics and experiences of members of 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 over the age of 13 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 ace individuals you know or any ace communities you participate in.

For answers to common questions about the survey, please see the FAQ here.

Results and analysis will be published on this website.

This ace community census is open to anyone over the age of 13, including both aces and non-aces. It will require approximately 15-20 minutes of your time to complete and will be open until November 15th, after which point no more entries will be accepted.

If you have any questions or concerns about the survey, you can contact the AVEN survey team at asexualcensus@gmail.com or leave a comment on this post, and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

And of course, please help spread the word!

Thanks!

Preliminary Findings from the 2014 AVEN Community Census

Just in time to wrap up Asexual Awareness Week, preliminary results from the census are now available!

The Preliminary Findings Report is a brief summary of some of the raw data from the survey, to give you an early glimpse of some of the results – it doesn’t contain finalized numbers and it doesn’t address all topics from the survey, but it should be just enough to whet your appetite for more!

We will also begin posting some more shorter snippets of analysis here in the form of blog posts.

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