The deadline for answering the survey is November 30, 2018.
Please help us by inviting your contacts to complete the survey; promotional materials about the project can be found here.
Six months after the opening of the 2018 Global Survey of Mathematical, Computing, and Natural Scientists, about 23 500 answers have already been collected, yet we were aiming at reaching 45 000 respondents. During this last month of accepting answers, focused efforts must therefore be made in all geographical zones and all disciplines to reach our target.
The geographical zones where special efforts are needed are North America and Eastern Europe, as well as Asia. The disciplines where special efforts are needed are Chemistry and Biology. Answers from male colleagues are particularly welcome in Africa and Oceania.
The map below shows the number of respondents to the survey by country, although it is somewhat misleading, since it shows absolute rather than normalized figures.
The seemingly numerous answers from the US, India or China are not so when compared to their population or number of scientists. The first map in green showing proportional figures makes this clearer! Note that on the green map, the reason why there are countries appearing with “no data” is that the UNESCO Institute for Statistics that we consulted to know the number of scientists per country does not have data from some countries. But it is often the case that such counties do have respondents to our survey, and are then coloured on our red map.
If you are interested in specific information about the responses in your country or your discipline please contact us.
Please note: It may happen that a respondent belongs to a country whose name does not appear on the list of countries provided. If the country of the respondent does not appear in the list, please skip the question (all questions in the survey are optional) and name the country in the comments box for the last question.
