Introduction to the Effective Altruism Survey - 2020

Introduction

Thank you very much in advance for completing this survey. Our hope is that it will help the effective altruist community better understand our actions, values, demographics, and ideas, and will be used by a number of effective altruist organisations to help inform their work. 

All questions in this survey can be skipped. The final ‘Extra Credit’ page of the survey is especially optional, for those who are happy to answer more questions.

We estimate that the main section of the survey will take approximately 20 minutes (on average) to complete. 
 
Prize

This year, the Centre for Effective Altruism has generously donated a prize of $500 (USD) that will be awarded to a randomly selected respondent to the EA Survey, for them to donate to any of the organizations listed on EA Funds. Please note that to be eligible, you will need to provide a valid e-mail address so that we can contact you about the prize.
