I used to have a raw table of all data at the end of this survey but as the file got bigger, I decided to go another route and provide a once-in-time csv snapshot. There are about 13,000 records in this file which should be enough numbers to occupy all you nervous pregnant math nerds out there. As always, I love feedback. If you see something interesting/weird/problematic/inspiring in this data please email me (spacefem at spacefem dot com).
