Do we know the demographics of metafilter users?

Reading the recent user survey summary, I see a lot of talk about the identity of the user base. Do we actually know what the demographics are of MetaFilter users? Has there ever been an attempt to survey the users' identities? It would be interesting to know how people think of themselves in terms of nationality, politics, gender, race, sexuality, class, etc. I often read assertions in comments about the identities of the user base, but I am wondering if they correspond to the user base in reality.

When was the last time we had a Mefi survey? Given the growing number of members, it would be interesting to learn how the demographics have changed (or stayed the same).

Take my survey; I don't think so!

View my ads Take my poll. I have some difficulty judging what's appropriate for AskMe these days, so I played along until the ad thing came up. Putting Google ads on the user's (presumably specifically made for that thread) poll pages seems a bit out of line. What say?

Take a survey

If you want to help me and the site out, take a short survey to help match the site up with future advertisers. I'll publish a summary of results after it's done.

Did we really have to delete the Quarter-Life Crisis question?

Did we really have to delete the Quarter-Life Crisis question?

I know that in one way it looked like a survey question, but in another way, it was "I am freaking out about this. How did you deal with it?" As such, it was no different from half the advice questions out there. Even though it may not have been the best-worded question AskMe has ever seen, it would have been really helpful to have. Also, if a question is borderline, can we let it stay a little to see if it gets good advice-type answers despite poll-ish wording instead of killing it before it has a chance? That would be totally rad.

User Census

Hi everyone, longtime lurker, first time poster. During my days in the wilderness poking my nose in here and reading religiously, I've always wondered if there had ever been a "metapoll" conducted of the membership. If there has, please excuse my ignorance (I couldn't find any mention of it). If not, I think it would be the greatest thing ever! Politics, favourite music, movie, country of origin, languages spoken. I'd love to know more about the gang in a non privacy-violating way...Not that I'd know how to go about doing it. Any suggestions?
