The Mormon Gender Issues Survey Group is a group of academics who are in the process of designing and conducting surveys of Mormons about their views on gender issues in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The results of the surveys will be published in several formats, including as reports, book chapters, and peer-reviewed articles.
The group currently plans to conduct two surveys: a non-random internet sample (using snowball sampling) and a random, nationally representative sample of members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. To fund the nationally representatives sample, the group conducted a Kickstarter campaign that successfully raised the money required. (A full accounting of all expenditures will be made available to contributors.)
One of the group’s primary objectives is to capture a more nuanced view of gender issues in the Mormon church than is captured by existing (and often-cited) surveys.
