The results are finally in! With just over 1000 responses, there was a lot of data to go over. Thank you to everyone who participated in the survey! Now, on to the results.

The first question was “Are you autistic?” 80% of respondents answered “yes”, 16% answered “maybe”, and 4% answered “no”. image003

The next question asked what neurodivergencies people had in addition to autism. Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder, Major Depressive Disorder, ADHD, and PTSD were the most common comorbid conditions.

The following is the raw data from the survey:

The next question was what physical disabilities people had. Most common were Allergies, Asthma, Migraines, Chronic Pain, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
