There were 376 responses to the survey I posted on /r/exmormon on Janurary 21, 2013. 
The survey has closed and is no longer available. 
Almost 5% of the subreddit's followers took the survey.

Current Age Distribution.



Gender


Sexual Identity


Marital Status
Please note that the "single" categories also include those who might normally select "divorce" or "windowed". 
This was an oversight and will be compensated for in a future survey.

Current Church Activity and Membership


Spouse/Partner's Church Activity

Note: There was no "other" option.

Extended Family 

note: There was some confusion regarding this question. 
A note was included with the question that this applies to any relative other than spouses and children. 
People were able to choose multiple answers to cover the differing 
beliefs among their relatives, so the percentages will not equal 100%.
