Background Demographic Information

Tell us about who you are.

The Profiling for Good project is surveying GLBT college and high school students from around Minnesota to collect stories of their high school experiences. The goal is to create safer schools for GLBT students. In addition to personal stories, demographic information is gathered about schools and communities. Analysis not dissimilar to targeted marketing is applied to find correlations between stories and environments. Organizations such as OutFront Minnesota can use this information in their strategic planning with communities and legislators.

How does this work?

People are shaped by their environments. The cultures of family, school, church and community influence an individual's character and self-image. By gathering personal experiences (unseen) along with community information (seen), the seen can be used to predict the unseen. Bullying behaviors can be profiled and groups with a bullying profile can be targeted proactively with resources geared toward their demographic.

Your participation in this survey will help us get an idea of students' experiences throughout the state and the communities in which they live. Individual responses are confidential, though if you give your permission, we'd like to be able to quote you anonymously. Thank you for taking the time to make Minnesota schools a safer place for all students.
