We need your help: Volunteer for the Survey Team

This call for volunteers is closed! If you’re still interested, you may contact us directly, but expect a slower response.


The Ace Community Survey Team is currently looking for new volunteers, particularly people with programming or technical writing skills.

Our team designs and releases a survey every year, analyzes data, and produces reports. We seek to understand the diversity and well-being of ace communities, and educate activists and researchers with up to date information.

The major roles that we currently need volunteers for are:

  • Data analysis: Work with our team to create summaries and visualizations of survey data and find interesting trends, review the analysis of team members, and possibly improve tools for analysis. Work is done in Python with Jupyter notebooks and collaboration through GitHub and Discord (in English).
  • Writing reports: Work with our team and describe, interpret, and contextualize analyzed data and review work of other report writers. We currently publish one major report each year (in English). Comfort with basic ace concepts and terminology is required. If interested, also help with interpretation of write-in responses.

Further details will be explained upon joining!  We hold training sessions for new volunteers, and monthly meetings on chat.

Time commitments are flexible depending on your availability at any given part of the year, but we recommend setting aside at least 4-5 hours a month to do work on your own time, plus an additional hour for meetings.

If you’re interested, please fill out this form by the beginning of August 2022, and allow several weeks for a response. If you’d like more information, you may contact us at acecommunitysurvey@gmail.com 

2020 Data and New Data Guide available

We are pleased to announce that raw data from the 2020 Ace Community Survey is now available for researchers wishing to perform additional analysis!

If you are a researcher and would like to request a copy of the raw data, please fill out the new data request form here. Raw data from previous years is also available.

Data availability for the 2020 survey was delayed because of changes in preprocessing, and improvements in the metadata.  These changes are documented in our updated Data Guide (which supersedes the old guide).

The 2021 Ace Community Survey is now open

The survey is now closed. Thanks for participating!


It’s that time of year again – we are now recruiting participants for the Ace Community Survey!

The Ace Community Survey, run by the Ace Community Survey Team, collects valuable information on the demographics and experiences of members in the ace community, including asexual, demisexual, gray-asexual, and related identities. It is the largest survey of ace communities and creates a valuable pool of data for future ace community activists and researchers.

The survey is open to anyone: ace, non-ace, or still questioning. As long as you are 13 years of age or older, we want to hear from you! We want to get a wide variety of responses from as many parts of the community as possible, so we encourage you to share this link with any other potentially interested individuals you know or any ace communities you participate in.

As part of this year’s Ace Week, we are excited to share with you the summary results from the 2017 and 2018 Ace Community Surveys, which we are publishing together in one report:

Publishing two years of data in one report is part of our effort to get up to date with analysis for the most recent surveys.

If you are a researcher or community non-profit institution, you may request access to the data.

Many thanks to everyone who took the survey! We couldn’t have done it without you. If you are interested in participating in the 2020 Ace Community Survey, keep an eye out — we will be releasing a link tomorrow!
