[Research Request] Asexualiy Statistics By Country

Recommended Posts

Rexcaliburr

Hey everyone! So I am an IB student and I am doing my math IA on if there is a correlation between GDP per capita and asexuality stats in select countries (and my hypothesis is that likely there isn't). I intend to look through multiple countries including several developed and developing countries. Preferably, I would like to look at the US, UK, China/India (if enough people who can reply to me are from there) and any Southeast Asian country except Singapore (sorry fellow Singaporeans, but we're classed as a developed country!)

 

So basically all I need are the following:

 

Where you are from:
Year you confirmed your asexuality:

Preferably I would like to collect data between 2000 and 2010, but if you confirmed your asexuality before or after that, please feel free to help me out anyway! You also don't need to be from the US/UK/China/India/SEA to answer me since I need as much help as I get and I can change around the countries if I find another country is giving me more data, but if you're from these countries listed above in particular please please do help out a student!

 

It'll be great if I could get all my answers by February 5 as I still have to write up my report by the week after! No worries if you found this thread late though, I still need as much data as possible. Thanks!

I'm from the Philippines and formally confirmed and identified as an asexual (well, under the ace spectrum, actually) in 2016. Hope my information and other AVENites' helps with your report :)

Submitted through Google Doc.

I just wanted to add that I commend your work. As a former IB student myself, I know how challenging and also how rewarding the program is. In fact, I discovered the word "asexual" even existed to refer to humans as a sexual orientation while I was studying in IB, but it wasn't taught in class or anything. It was from there though that I began to realize there were actually others like me and I wasn't as insane or freakish as everyone had always made me feel. Good luck with your research, hope that my contribution assists you.

Filled the form, though i'm not sure how accurate the results of this research can and will be since

  1. it's in english
  2. it's been shared in an english-language forum (and english-language social media accounts)
  3. awareness of asexuality began in USA (and UK) and it expanded with time to the rest of the world, so statistic differences wouldn't be related to GDP per capita as much as to the development of local ace communities and the accessibility to resources on asexuality in your language and in mass media

Just to keep in mind for the "limitations of the study" part. But i don't know if you're also asking for help in specific Indian and SEA ace communities, beside AVEN, so idk.

Good luck (y)
