Participation was way down from last year’s round of Who Are Lamb? despite the vast increase in members, but I still want to thank the 88 members who spent their five minutes taking the survey.
The biggest age difference was the increase of minors (6% jump), a small 1% decrease of ladies out there writing, a small jump in GLBT writers (4%), more singles, fewer white folks, but a lot more Americans (10% jump). Details below:
As for the additional information, the most represented U.S. states are New York (8), California (7) and Illinois (6) and most of our European LAMBs are in the U.K. (8).
