The NB/GQ Stats Survey 2017


1. Introduction

Welcome to the fourth annual survey of people whose genders fall outside of the gender binary!

For the past few years we've had about 3,000 people take part to give us really helpful data about the language we use to describe ourselves. We never collect details about your birth assignment or identifying information such as names or email addresses. The standard questions ask about gender words, pronouns, and titles. This year our one-off curiosity questions are about age, umbrella terms, and spelling of the word "nonbinary/non-binary/non binary". There's also a new way of asking about pronouns to try and get more helpful and uniform data.

There are eight questions. Please note that there are two required questions: the question asking whether or not you live in the UK, and the question asking for your age.

As in previous years, I'll go over the data and then compile it into a report in the form of a blog post. I hope that the information can be used to inform choices, persuade authorities, and help nonbinary people to feel less alone. You can see previous years' results here.

The survey is open for three weeks, ending Monday 27th February 2017 at the earliest. If the survey is still open, your entry will be counted. I will close it just before I start processing the data.

If you want to be notified of the results and future annual surveys, please do click here to sign up to the mailing list.

And if you know someone who might be interested in taking part, share the URL of this page with them.

Thank you very much!

For the purposes of this survey, "binary" describes:
1) anyone whose gender is always entirely and solely male,
2) anyone whose gender is always entirely and solely female.

If you don't fit into either of these two groups, you are welcome to take part. If you suspect that you don't fit into either of these two groups, you are welcome to take part. I err on the side of inclusivity, so if you're still not sure you should probably just go for it.



I understand that information about your gender can be very sensitive and private information.

I am no expert in online privacy and security, and I am unable to take extra steps to ensure your safety. I do not collect or have access to your name or email address. If you have any doubt about the security of SmartSurvey or your own device or internet connection, please take whatever steps you feel are necessary to protect yourself and your information.
