The 2018 Global Survey of Mathematical, Computing, and Natural Scientists was open from May 1st, 2018 through December 31st, 2018. About 34,000 responses were collected during this time. Thanks for your support and valuable contribution!

The number and distribution of respondents is reflected on the map that has been posted on the Global Project website. Given the large differences in population and number of scientists between countries, this image may be somewhat misleading.

In terms of scientific disciplines, the number of answers is excellent in mathematics, good in physics and astronomy, and satisfactory in computer science.

In terms of regions, the number of answers (compared to the overall number of scientists in the region) is excellent in Latin America and good in Oceania, Africa and Western Europe.

Answers were collected in 7 languages, but nearly 2/3 of them were in English.

We presented the results obtained for Latin America during the workshop that was held at the ICTP in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on October 7-11, 2019 and that had over 120 participants.

An overview of all the results will be given during the closing activity of the project that will take place at the ICTP in Trieste, Italy, on 4-8 November, 2019.

If you are interested in specific information about the number of responses we obtained in your country or your discipline please contact the people in charge of the survey.

Our work for the survey at the Latin American Regional Workshop, Bogota, Colombia, November 2017.
