Note: Survey questions about respondents' demographics were recently modified or added to match best practices, and depict comparative data from over 50 funders in the dataset. Demographic questions related to grantees' POC and racial/ethnic identity are only asked of respondents in the United States.
Survey language and response options for questions about race and ethnicity are guided by best practices shared by National Institutes of Health, Pew Research Center, Psi Chi Journal of Psychological Research, and the US Census Bureau.
Survey language and response options for questions about gender and LGBTQ+ identity are guided by best practices shared by Funders For LGBTQ Issues, HRC Foundation's Welcoming Schools, and the Williams Institute of the University of California – Los Angeles School of Law.
Survey respondents are asked to share their gender identities in a check-all-that-apply question. Each chart has the option of showing the average ratings of respondents who selected only "man," only "woman," multiple gender identities, "gender non-conforming or non-binary," "prefer to self-identify," and "prefer not to say" - as long as that response option had at least 10 respondents.
All answers on demographic identity are optional. International survey respondents were asked to opt-in to responding to questions on gender, disability, and transgender identity.
It is CEP's standard practice to analyze responses for differences by the following demographics characteristics:
There are no consistent, significant differences in ratings when respondents are segmented by Respondent Gender
There are too few respondents to analyze results by Person of Color Identity
There are too few respondents to analyze results by Transgender Identity
There are too few respondents to analyze results by LGBTQ+ Identity
There are too few respondents to analyze results by Disability Identity
