The APA Member Demographics report for fiscal years 2014–2016 is now available and includes data on gender, race/ethnicity, LGBT status, disability status, type of employment, and tenure status. Beginning with FY2016, data is also provided on the membership by geographic region. These annual reports reflect only active APA members of a specified year. Demographic information for lapsed members (those who have not paid dues) is not included.
Professional and demographic information on the APA membership is requested of the association often as it is a valuable tool referenced regularly by university administrators, hiring departments, committees, and others to understand the composition of the association and the profession. To gain a complete and thorough demographic picture, it is important that all members keep their memberships current so a fuller account of our makeup can be represented on the reports.
If you have not done so already, please renew your APA membership as soon as possible and verify your demographic information so that you too can be reflected in these reports.
