You may have noticed that Dr. Isis of the On Becoming a Domestic and Laboratory Goddess blog ran a reader demographic poll over the weekend. I became curious about the Dear Readership here at the DM blog and thought I would run a similar poll.
Please check all that apply.
Okay, now that I've had my fun, on to the real polling.
First, what gender do you most-closely identify with?
Second, which racial or ethnic group do you identify with? In this I am following the logic of Dr. Isis:
To give you a bit of background, these are the ethnic/classifications I report when using NIH dollars to study human research participants (more info can be found here), with two exceptions. First, I have distinguished between white and Hispanic and white and non-Hispanic to make the poll simpler. Also, I have allowed the possibility of a multiracial selection. If you choose "multiracial" as an option, would you kindly also choose the racial/ethnic groups that compose your multiracial-ness?
I have added an additional option for my nonUS readers.
