    Hey @Grzmot, hope you’re doing okay. When I saw this thread I will admit I felt for you. Running online surveys is really hard, especially in nitpicky communities (I was one of the mods who ran the r/SpaceX surveys, it’s basically an invitation to be chastised and abused), and although people aren’t necessarily being mean here—the culmination of critical comments and super nitpicky opinions can certainly make it feel like you’re in the firing line!

    Like come on, In the interests of kindness and positivity, is this really the thread to moan about how a website that describes itself as an “app” is “annoying”? Far out, chill!

      Cheers mate, you're the cavalry that just arrived with compliments :^)

      Thanks, I appreciate you looking out for me. And you're right, even though the feedback is all constructive and I think warranted, it still stings a little when people complain about stuff you put out there. But hey, nothing is perfect, and for my first attempt, I think I did alright. I can only improve it with my future attempts, with the knowledge that ultimately, I'll never please everyone cause that's impossible.

    Hello everyone, after the recent dicussion about bringing back the Tildes census, as the people who organized it before weren't available anymore, I've decided to step up with my attempt. Please note, this is the first time I've done something like this, and I've made the questions similar to the last census. As those questions weren't available directly, I've followed the analysis of the results.

    There are definitely ways for it to be improved, especially when it comes to work related and language related questions, but I didn't know how to approach the problem precisely, so I've opted to include what I think will be the most selected options (based on the last census). Most options have an Other choice if you are not satisfied with the presented choices. No option has to be answered, if you prefer not to give out any info about yourself.

    Any ideas on how to improve it for next year are very much welcome, I hope you're satisfied with the form! I'll keep the form open for at least a week so everyone gets a chance to answer. After that, I'll try to analyze(visualize the data, though I don't know when I'll release it as exams are looming on the horizon menacingly. If someone else would volunteer to visualize the data earlier, that would be great.

    Ideas on how to improve the census:

    • Give a better scale for politics, define what 1 and 10 exactly mean
    • More options for education, especially trade qualifications like apprenticeships, etc.
    • Provide a more nuanced way to defined your political standing
    • Give way more options for field of work

      Thank you for doing this! Some feedback:

      1. The languages section could be expanded to include at least 10–15 most spoken languages. Or have several write-in fields. I couldn't write both Russian and Esperanto in, so I ended up only doing so for Russian.
      2. Computer and mobile OS questions should be multiple choice. I have two GNU/Linux computers and one OpenBSD one. I also know of people who have both an Android phone and an Apple one.

        The occupation question could be more granular as well. There are so many "IT" personnel here that it makes sense to delve into industry and specialization.

          I wasn't sure if "IT" included programming, since that can be called software engineering and "engineering" was an option.

        I suppose it's asking more what your main OS is. I use Linux 99% of the time, but have a Windows partition for certain games. I wouldn't put Windows down if it were multiple choice, personally.

      Yeah this could use much improvement. What about manufacturers, lawyers, cashiers, restaurant workers, police officers and teachers? People that work multiple jobs? Unemployed people? Retirees? A better model might be this one, although it is pretty difficult to categorize employment. A better political model might be the one 8values uses. Questions about your income and upbringing might be helpful to determine if we're wealthier than average or not (although this is firmly in the group of questions that should have 'don't want to answer' as an option.) A question about theme usage and how important privacy is to you should probably be included, since they were included in the original census. 'For how many years have you been using the Internet' could be an interesting question to include in the census.

        None of the answers are required to send off the form, this way I was able to avoid a "Prefer not to say" on any of those, in particular the personal question.

        When it came to the political leaning I was aware that it wasn't the best way to ask it, but I didn't know how to put any better without the form becoming too bloated. Politics is a nuanced subject, and I don't think that left/right are sufficient enough terms. However, if I included them all, the list would probably be longer than the 196 countries I put in manually. The example you used, 8values, is a quiz that itself has another 70 questions. I think we should also take care to keep the census short as to not put people off when they open the form.

        What about manufacturers, lawyers, cashiers, restaurant workers, police officers and teachers?

        I cannot include every single job on this list, some sort of aggregation will have to be done to make further analysis of the data possible. I agree that my list was very short and by far not enough to describe everyone's job.

        Questions about your income and upbringing might be helpful to determine if we're wealthier than average or not (although this is firmly in the group of questions that should have 'don't want to answer' as an option.)

        Income already varies greatly inbetween countries. In the US people usually make more and are taxed less, but only because you have a number of expenses people in other countries don't have, like healthcare. I don't know how much it would help with analyzing the demographic of Tildes.

          Admittedly, that's correct. Asking people what income percentile they are in their country is the closest we can come to a solution on this and doesn't account for inequality differences and currencies, although it would still be helpful to know if we're richer than average or not :P

          The example you used, 8values, is a quiz that itself has another 70 questions.

          You don't need to take the quest, you just need to rank yourself like on your current test, but on 4 axes.

          None of the answers are required to send off the form, this way I was able to avoid a "Prefer not to say" on any of those, in particular the personal question.

      Just to jump on the 'better scale for politics' bandwagon: A one-dimensional political spectrum is too compressed to be particularly meaningful.

      There are many suggested models for political spectra. Personally I think something like the three dimensions of the Vosem Cube can be insightful and could be captured with three scales, one each for:

      1. Governmental focus (anarchism and monarchism being extrema)
      2. Social focus (liberalism and conservatism being extrema)
      3. Economic focus (socialism and capitalism being extrema)

        I don't know that people would say no to that just to be funny. A lot of people on here are genuinely protective of their privacy. I haven't filled out the survey yet, but looking at that, I'd lean towards saying no, but it depends on how the data would be released.

        If the data were to be shared as individual survey entries, I know I wouldn't want it released. I'm open on here about being a teacher, and I doubt there are very many others on Tildes, so that one answer would either give away the rest of my demographic data or help someone narrow it down to only a few entries, even if everything submitted is technically "anonymous".

    1, Do you identify as male/female/other?
    2, Do you identify as transgender?

      I was aware of this, but I thought that simply leaving it as male, female, other would be insufficient and inconsiderate. And giving those two options leaves too much room for interpretation, because checking the boxes male and trans could mean either a FTM or a MTF person, as some people pre-transition could still see it as referring to their "original" gender. Though I don't know if people do that.

      Thank you for the feedback, it'll help for next time.

        In general, if a survey uses words like "identify," I'll assume it's referring to gender identity. Some I've seen make this even clearer by having a question for sex assigned at birth as well - I don't think this is useful information to collect here though.

        It can get ambiguous when there's only "Male/Female" and it's just "pick one."

        Thank you for not making the question "Male/Female/Transgender," I've seen far too many of those.

      also neither is "some college", also "unemployed" or "disabled". For good measure "Agnostic" isn't part of the religion section. There should've been a poll on which questions go on the poll :)

    It would be nice if the sexuality question was multi-dimensional. It could be broken down into:

    1. How do you experience sexual attraction?
      a. Primarily based on aesthetic attraction (Allosexual)
      b. Primarily based on emotional connection (Demisexual)
      c. Not at all or very little (Asexual or Gray-A)
    2. To whom do you feel sexually attracted?
      a. People of the opposite gender (Heterosexual)
      b. People of the same gender (Homosexual)
      c. People of both opposite or same gender (Bisexual)
      d. Gender is not a consideration (Pansexual)
      e. Not Applicable

    My description of allosexuality might be off, so let me know.

        I'm using the term allosexuality very loosely. It really just means "any"-sexuality. It's a term commonly used among asexual people to describe non-asexual people. Many demisexual people identify more strongly with asexuality than allosexuality just because asexuality and demisexuality are both sexual minorities. That kinda leaves allosexuality as the only appropriate term to describe "normal" attraction.

        Most people experience sexual attraction as you describe. Initially it's solely based on looks. Later you can experience a compounded attraction that includes emotional connection. I hope there's a better term for it but don't know any.

          Hm in this case I might add something like "Do you experience romantic attraction differently than the majority?" But I'm not sure. Not to step on any toes, but I'm critical of the move to put labels on everything simply for the sake of having a label. Asexuality I view as valid because the complete absence of sexual attraction is a difference to the norm worth noting.

          But when it comes to things like Why do I like this person? or What am I attracted to in people? I think it becomes much harder to describe and label can actively hinder any productive conversation.

          On the other hand, what right do I have to not put it in, if people want it in? I try and weigh the advantages of it being useful information to collect and not bloating the form with useless questions too much, so people don't get put off by its length.

            One solution might be to just have a question that says something like "Do you consider yourself to be on the asexual spectrum?" and one that says the same but for the aromantic spectrum if you really want to get fancy. It doesn't necessarily include all the possible nuances and variations of such things, but it could work better for people who do recognize what it is and those who don't, rather than some people interpreting questions about how they feel attraction differently than others and potentially skewing the results.

    One suggestion: Don’t use a shitty site that thinks it’s hip to reinvent dropdowns. I clicked the dropdown. Pressed G for Germany. And nothing happened. Because the dropdown renders as some kind of div with mouseover effects.

    I hate sites like this that think "Hey, I don’t like the styling, let me reinvent the wheel. But I’ll be making it a square, it looks much cooler."
