Here at MNHQ it's census time again! This survey is open to everyone, and we'd love to hear from as many of you as possible, as it's really useful to us to find out a bit more about the people who use Mumsnet.

As a thank you for completing the census, all who complete the survey and leave their details at the end will be entered into our monthly prize draw where they could win one of three £150 vouchers.

Thanks and good luck!

I always start these surveys and censuses to see how far I get before before I click off thinking 'wtaf'. This was quite a quick one.

You lost me at question 3.

Done.

Can I ask how you use the information? Obviously some of it is for the purposes of enticing advertisers to the site but it would actually be very interesting as a user to see summaries of the data, at least on some of the basic questions, is that possible? Apologies if you publish this information already and I've missed it.

There are often comments on threads about the mumsnet demographic and it would be really interesting to know the reality in terms of overall proportions in terms of the basic stuff like age, number of children, marital status, level of income, level of education, sectors of professions etc.

Agreed, I don't fill in any surveys when I get to a question about gender rather than sex.

CorpusCallosum Wed 29-Sep-21 12:40:40

I did manage to get past Q3

But it won't let me select no or other for Q16 and move to the next page. It says 'this question requires an answer'

Done! grin

TheLovelinessOfDemons Wed 29-Sep-21 14:41:38

I love the transphobia here. How do you suggest I answer then?

anothermansshoes Wed 29-Sep-21 14:47:39

Question 3 should be split

What sex are you
What if any gender identity do you have

OK, that I'd accept. I refuse to answer either anyway. I quite like being mysterious.

Question 3 makes no sense. Are you asking for my sex or my gender because these are mixed up in this question? If it's sex then I answer "female". If it's gender then I answer "none"

Why do you need to know specific age - why not an age bracket?

Answer however you want to answer!!
MN I suspect you are running the risk of ending up with some odd data - if a large percentage of GC MNers don't answer the survey 7/8 of the options at question 3 are effectively "Not Female" and it's not clear if the question is about sex or gender so you could potentially end up with lots of gender-free women choosing something other than "Female" and your results showing you that MN is mainly frequented by non-women (which I suspect is not the reality).

Agree.

I tried. Got to #12 before it started acting up and jumping to choose different options to my initial answer when I tried to scroll to "next". I gave up after it had happened three times. Don't have the patience or inclination to keep going back to correct answers.

If it helps, I'm on Android phone with Chrome.

Q12: why can't I be self employed & work part time???

Good question (that I didn't get to)!
