The 2021 Gender Census worldwide report is now published:
Here's a summary/TL;DR:
(I suspect that there must be a fair few people who entered a binary sex that is different from their legal sex, and there was no answer option for them, so perhaps a lot of them said they "spoiled" it?)
Results, combining the Twitter and Mastodon answers and minus the "see results" responses.
About 20% of 296 respondents said they either "spoiled" the question or left if blank.
There were only 20 intersex respondents, but about 30% of them spoiled it or left it blank.

Just bumping a couple of polls about the English-Welsh-Northern-Irish Census that is taking place today!

Another option might be... to limit the survey to 40,000 responses per year? 🤨 (Very much not what I want to do.)
Money is a secondary consideration to user-friendliness, it doesn't have to be free - if I can't learn how to use it without going to uni then the Gender Census is kaput, y'know? So if it has to cost money to be solo-learnable (a real phrase) then I may have to crowdfund.
On that note! Statisticians, can you help out?
I'm going to need some software that can handle a LOT of calculations on a fairly average computer, involving probably 50,000 survey responses. The most important factor is user-friendliness.
I wish I could somehow crowdfund "Cassian learns a new software" - no amount of money will make my brain do the thing, you know?
Please note, this is very optimistic, I may not manage it because I have a LOT of fatigue today. On the other hand, it might be a pretty effective way to keep me resting on the sofa. 🤔
Bad news: This means I will definitely have to (*gulp*) learn new software and maybe even upgrade my computer in order to handle next year's responses, assuming they increase at a similar rate.
Good news: Maybe tomorrow I can start writing up the worldwide report for 2021??
