        SOC.MOTSS CENSUS, ROUND 1

        Here are the first stats from the census I took last
month.  To date I have 143 responses.  I've divided things up
into geography, age, sex, orientation and posting frequency.
I haven't done any cross referencing yet... I"ll work on that soon.

        For people who want to add ot this database, a separate
posting with the relevant form and instructions should pop up
after this...

Cheers, BBC

        SEX

  26  F         115  M    1  pre-op_MtF_TS

        M/F ratio 4.42 (23% womyn)  this is a little better than
the last census, where it was more like 4.8:1.0 or 21%...

  I haven't set things up to do this cross-referenced with sex yet...

        I have to admit I was surprised by this...  I had expected
a greater college-age component, though this could be a fluctuation
given the fact that it's summer break....

All I'll say is that #10 person is NOT who first same to my mind...
