2020 Space Census
This census is for people working in the UK space sector
That includes everything from being a satellite engineer to doing marketing for a company that uses data from space in its apps. We are not including undergraduate students, amateur astronomers, or space enthusiasts who do not work in the sector.
It's being conducted by the Space Skills Alliance
We are a not-for-profit research organisation, running this census on behalf of the Space Growth Partnership's Space Skills Advisory Panel, which informs national policy and sector strategy, feeding directly into the Space Sector Council and the UK Space Agency.
The results will make the space sector a better place to work
There is no existing data about who works in the space sector and why, but this is vitally important information to help it grow and make it more welcoming. We will use the data from this survey to improve what it’s like to work in the sector, tackle discrimination, and make the sector more attractive to new recruits.
It'll take between 5 and 10 minutes
Almost all of the questions are closed questions that are quick and easy to answer. If you have some time to spare, there are opportunities to provide some more detail, which we would really appreciate.
It is anonymous and all questions are optional
You can answer all, some, or none of the questions. We will make no attempt to identify you, but you can optionally provide your email address at the end if you are interested in being involved in follow-up studies.
