Hey all,
This is by no means official, but I thought I’d conduct a bit of a UG Community Census, and perhaps post an article with the statistics and maybe a few conclusions based on them. So, I’ll be adding various polls over time (don't want to spam too much), and I’m going to link each poll to all the others through the first initial post on each poll. If you want, go through and vote on every one! Feel free to discuss any of the results as they occur!
Oh, and give me cash. I want a taco.
Toodles,

So, just to completely hijack this thread...

Feel free to check out the other Census polls:

Just as a note, "Other" is there just in the odd case there might be somebody who's somewhere in the between. Please don't select that option as joke too much, as it will throw off any validity in the statistics of this poll (as unscientific as it is).

Why isn't there a "not sure" option?

Hm... I suppose I figured that's what other was for, as I kinda doubted there would be a large majority of people in this situation. My bad.

you do realize thats exactly what's gonna happen, don't you?

Yeah, pretty much.

The whole "other" thing is all well and good for when you've actually got a hermaphrodite or a genderless person come on... but if you want to keep an accurate poll on UG it's best not to put it there 'cause there'll be LOTS of "others" happening.


And I'm male.

you should have just left it as male female. or *i'm an ass and i'm trying to make this look funny* that would have worked too :P

How can you say that your poll has validity when there's an "other" option? What other gender have you encountered besides male and female? It's obviously a joke, and you can't possibly expect anyone to take this thread seriously.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

Actually, I honestly wanted to just cover the case of transgendered, transexual, hermaphrodite, or genderless people. They do exist, and you never know. It wasn't an attempt at a joke at all really. In retrospect, I should have been a little bit more wise about the reality of how people are going to be here... I think. 'eh, we'll see what happens.

Well, we we're at first worried about that, but it seems people are being fairly mature about it. So far we only have 2, which is definitely good news. I was hoping for an actually accurate report, so that's not too bad.

Ooo, and a girl! Nab 'er quick! haha

Second female to vote? I feel small at the moment.

Why small? Be proud to be one of the few I suppose. Honestly, there definitely aren't enough female musicians in general around, in most genres that would have guitar as a focus at all. Even when you look at vocals in modern bands and acts lately, there are a few notable ones, but compared to men, not too many. On top of that, there haven't been many notable female guitarists in a while. Albeit it's a male-dominated industry currently, I would think that right now people would be very accepting of the idea.

Oh, and nice teddy bear, lol.

Actually, that information does not necessarily make you a man.

Well, if you include the 5% "other" which are very likely guys in the guys category, looks like my prediction of 95% guy:5% girl ration was roughly correct. Ker-azy.

I think we can make the generalisation of UG being mainly

White Male's between 14 and 30.
#33
Hm.. that's something I didn't think about doing. Race that is. That'd be interesting to see too. I'd be kinda surprised if the vast majority (above 80%) was white. But yeah, UG is definitely manly.

Haha, I totally agree. Little statistical error going on here. I'm quite surprised to be honest. I'm going to do a "What do you think your maturity level is" poll later for this too. Could be interesting.

Holy shit, only 7% of Ugers are chicks?

#38
You're really surprised? Probably less actually, as most of those other's are probably guys. How many female guitarists do you know? I was very active musically in highschool, and knew probably... 20-25 guitarists. Three of them were girls, and I'd only say one of them could play more then strum along while they sang.

Not that I'm saying girls can't play. Just telling the facts of my particular situation. Not a lot of girls that are into guitar enough to talk about things like we do on UG, it seems. Hopefully in 5 years it changes.

Edit: I'm realizing that it'd still be 7% girls, even if you threw the other into the guys part. Math skills are weak today.
