A report on APA membership demographics for 2013-2014 is now available.
For a number of years, there have been calls for the APA to improve and increase its tracking of member demographics. These calls go back at least to what is informally known as the "Hanson Report,” a 1999 report by an Ad Hoc Committee on Problems and Priorities of the APA, and were reiterated over the years by the board of officers and various APA committees, as well as members, departments, and institutions.
We are very pleased to, at long last, be able to provide this kind of information to and about our membership. Though, for this first year of reporting, the information provided is somewhat limited, we plan to expand and increase the data reported in future years. We welcome feedback and suggestions for improvements to our collection and reporting of demographic data. Suggestions may be emailed to [email protected]
