About the survey


The Community Insights Survey is conducted annually to help the Wikimedia Foundation learn how to better support you, both on- and off-wiki. The 2024 survey questions will be used to help track progress toward the 2030 Strategic Direction. Information gathered in this survey helps the Foundation evaluate and strengthen its programs and strategies.

Some of the questions you see could be about:

  • The online and offline activities you participate in.
  • Your experience with collaboration, communication, and respectful interaction in the movement.
  • Your awareness of as well as opinions about various Wikimedia programs.
  • General demographic information such as where you live or the languages you speak.

What changed in 2024?

  • We focused on improving the survey experience based on feedback from past respondents.
  • We added a section of questions about motivations for contributing.
