The Gender Census is now at 23,600 responses, ish.

Only 12% of respondents are 31 or older. The best ways to share the survey link to catch the attention of the 31+ crowd are Facebook and one-on-one sharing. Can anyone post the link on Facebook? :)

It's not quite noon on day 5, and we just went over 23,000. That's 1,458 left to beat last year's record.

We hit 21,000 responses just before midnight. It's now 10 minutes into day 5 and there's a reasonable chance we'll beat last year's record today. It's not even been a week!

I'm in a Ukrainian TikTok! tiktok.com/@edwardrreese/video I understand about 3 words of it, but still, it's all very exciting. :D

I'm seeing a few people saying that they found the survey today through TikTok. Is there some kind of short, snappy video about gender I need to watch? 🤓

That might all change over the next few thousand responses, of course.

(Often people complain that their word isn't on a checkbox list. If you're sad about that, please do rope in your friends who also identify that way or use that pronoun - if it reaches 1% it'll get added.)

I can Exclusively Reveal that so far one identity word looks like it might be removed from the checkbox list due to getting under 3% in both age ranges, and two write-ins will be added due to being written in by over 1% of at least one age range.

I won't say which words. (Bias.)

The eighth annual international Gender Census 2021 is now open until 10th March!

It's for anyone whose genders (or lack thereof) aren't described by the M/F binary. It's short and easy, and the results are useful in academia, business and self-advocacy.

(Because some people like when you mix it up a lot between several preferred sets frequently and randomly, and some people, e.g. genderfluid people or drag artists, have pronouns that change with their presentations or identities.)

Thank you to the participant who suggested that "mix it up" as a pronoun option is a bit ambiguous - you're right, people have been mentioning it for a while and you prompted me to finally decide to split this next year:

- Switch pronouns frequently
- My pronouns vary

It's the morning of day 3, and I haven't updated the participation spreadsheet yet but we're up to 13,000 responses. :)

To the participant who suggested I ask whether people have taken part in the Gender Census before - thank you, that's pretty useful for the longitudinal aspects of the reports, I'll be doing that from next year!

Almost 7,000 participants now, and I've pulled together a spreadsheet so that you call can see how it's going and to compare to the response rate from previous years!

We're only two days in so the line is very short, but - it's the red one on the left.

Now that the survey is open, I'd like to say a big thank you to @andrea, who kindly designed the new search box for the identity question, and jumped in to help me at short notice when I messed up.

Please head over to her profile to click some pinned links and support her!

Good news, the test survey is now closed because the real survey is now open until 10th March! smartsurvey.co.uk/s/GenderCens
