The first census was taken earlier this year, the results are now out, I had not come across it until I came across a link on the Linux Chix web site (http://www.linuxchix.org)http://adainitiative.org/what-we-do/census/The Ada Initiative Census is a periodic survey of women in the open technology and culture community, designed to “take the temperature” of women’s participation in open communities. Our goals are to learn what projects women are working on, and how women are treated in each community.They will use the results of this survey to help design other Ada Initiative projects. The census will be repeated from time to time to help them understand changes in the community over time.

"In summary, few of our respondents feel that women are well-represented in open technology and culture overall (about 8% regardless of gender). Women view open technology and culture as a whole to be less welcoming to women than men do. At the same time, women tend to view their primary community as much more welcoming to women than open tech/culture overall."
