"In the summer of 2013, Humane League Labs carried out a large-scale survey of vegans, vegetarians, semi-vegetarians, and omnivores to learn the demographic and diet change patterns of each group. With over 3,000 respondents, including over 1,500 vegans and vegetarians, the survey was the largest of its kind ever carried out. The goal of the survey was to enable vegan advocacy organizations to create more effective materials and messaging by learning more about each group and its eating patterns.
A total of 57 questions were posed to respondents. Statistical analysis was performed by Amit Steinberg, Gary Shapiro, and Shelley Hurwitz from Statistics Without Borders, to which we would like to extend our sincerest appreciation.
The results have important implications for groups carrying out vegan advocacy and meat reduction efforts. While specific implications are not detailed in the report, they are fairly straightforward upon reading.”
