The following press release was issued by the Armenian Diaspora Survey on July 13, 2022.

If you live in the United States or Ontario, Canada, make sure you share your views and opinions before the deadline of July 29.  

The Armenian Diaspora Survey (ADS) provides valuable insights into diaspora public opinion and a snapshot of Armenians’ thoughts on a host of issues, such as identity, language, culture, community and the homeland.  

ADS offers evidence-based knowledge to the public and valuable data to community leaders, activists and policy makers in particular, giving them a better understanding and analysis of their communities for the development of programmes and projects. 

This unprecedented research project, initiated and funded by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, is led by a group of scholars and researchers under the auspices of the Armenian Institute in London.   

Any Armenian, aged 18 and older, living in the United States and Ontario, Canada, can take the survey online. It take about 15 minutes to answer 50 questions.  

So far the survey has been carried out in over 35 diaspora communities in 10 countries.  

The results of the 2018 and 2019 studies have been published separately. In addition to English, the 2019 study is also available in Armenian and Spanish. All of the reports could be downloaded for free from ADS website.
