    MSE Poll: The MoneySavingExpert.com Annual Census 1st Oct 19 at 11:44 AM
    Poll started 1 October 2019
    So who are MoneySavers? For the sixth year running, rather than data-mining, we reckon the politest way to find out is just to ask. Plus we think you may like to find out a little bit more about who else uses this site (or more accurately, who uses this site and answers the polls).

    Did you vote? Are you surprised at the results so far? Have your say below.

    If you haven't already, join the forum to reply.

    Thanks!

    I was only the second person to vote so very easy for me to compare my answers to the other chap.

    Strange, it didn't record my vote for the Financial Times.

    Can we have a poll on the use of the word "gender" and whether it should either be banned or at least include a "i do not recognise the concept" - and NO that is not agender since that involves recognition of the term gender.

    Why does a paper qualification rank higher than an apprenticeship?

    Just a reply to the last question what's your favourite ball game? I do play badminton, but I have never played it with a ball. I always use a shuttlecock

    question about the questions

    Please may I ask why we weren't asked whether we identify as disabled people/people with a long-term health condition that impacts our day to day life?

    One in two people living in poverty in the UK are disabled or live in a household with a disabled person (source: https://www.disabilityrightsuk.org/news/2016/august/half-people-poverty-are-disabled-or-live-disabled-person). This may be because being a disabled adult costs an extra 583 on average per month while 20% face disability-related costs of over 1000 a month (source: https://www.scope.org.uk/campaigns/extra-costs/disability-price-tag/).

    I believe many disabled people can and do benefit from MSE's help. There is an MSE forum dedicated to the specific money-saving needs of disabled people. So I just wondered why you didn't ask about disability status in your survey?

    Thanks in advance
    Jenni
