Aboutthe DesignCensus

The Design Census is an open and collaborative survey and resource for understanding the complex economic, social, and cultural factors shaping the design practice today.
What are the goals of the survey?
Created by Google and AIGA, the goal is to move beyond basic salary conversations and collect information that can be used to empower the design community to take charge of its professional development and achieve greater happiness through insight.
Who should participate?
Are you a design professional working in the US? We want to hear from you. Design is a growing field and we want to capture how it's changing year to year.
How will you protect my privacy?
The survey is completely anonymous. User IDs from AIGA, Google, and Twitter are all one-way encrypted. No other information about the user is stored.
What will you do with the results?
All the information we collect will be anonymized and made available to the public. We encourage everyone to explore the data and react to it, whether it's a tweet, a poster, a microsite, or an essay. We're excited to see what you do with the results! For examples, see how the data was used in our 2016 survey.
Why do I have to log in with a Google, Twitter, or AIGA account?
In order to collect unbiased data, we need to ensure people take the census only once. These logins allow us to authenticate users easily.
