These data were sourced from the 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2018 and 2020 UC Undergraduate Experience Surveys. All UC Berkeley undergraduate students enrolled in the spring semesters were invited to participate in the UCUES. Participation was voluntary and response rates ranged from 29% to 50%, so the results should be treated with caution.
For the “Sexual orientation of UC Berkeley students” visualization, students who responded “decline to state” were not included because the option was unavailable from 2016 onward.
For the “What is your current gender identity?” visualization, trans men and women are aggregated because the UCUES results did not distinguish the two options until 2018. Students who responded “decline to state” were grouped with those that responded “other” for 2011 and 2012. Information on “decline to state” responses was unavailable from 2016 onward.
