Sayoni Queer Women Survey 2006 Report

on . Posted in Announcements.

Sayoni proudly presents Sayoni Queer Women Survey 2006 Report, compiling the results of this year’s survey.



1. To ameliorate the dire lack of information on queer women in Singapore. Currently, there is no proper understanding of how the women�s queer community functions, other than biased and disjoint personal views.

2. To gain some perspective on the actual needs of queer women, and what we can do about them

3. To provide free and accessible information to researchers, and act as a starting point for further research into the field
The survey is broken down into four main aspects. Questions in each category are streamlined and standardised for easy answering, by presenting most of the questions as rating questions where possible.

1. Introduction
General background.

2. Family, Friends and Work
Questions on how out the respondent is to various circles of people in their lives, how this group has reacted to the information, and the respondent�s intention to come out to that particular group.

3. Personal
Questions on the personal level relating to sexual orientation. Probes how the respondents come to realise their sexuality, different aspects of personal identity, and how their sexuality has affected them. Also includes information on relationships of respondents.

4. Financial
Questions to ascertain the financial status of queer women as a community – on salary, type of industry respondents choose to work in, housing and car ownership.

This survey was not carried out with a null hypothesis in mind, and much of the information contained in this report is processed descriptive statistics. Where possible, averages and trends have been pre-computed, presented along with a broad analysis of the data.

The statistics available are broken down across Age, Ethnicity and Religion, as it is believed that these three different aspects affect the average queer woman in her views and social situation with respect to her sexuality. Where either age, ethnicity or religion is perceived to have no bearing on the response, the data has been left out.

This report is available for free download for the public. However, a lot of effort and time has been put into conducting this survey and collating the results into this report.
