Over the years there have been more than a handful of attempts at an anarchist survey. Way back in 1926 some anarchists from Stuebenville, Ohio called "Los Iconoclastas" conducted an international survey of anarchists. In 1928, Emma Goldman and Alexander Berkman created a similar survey that was an influence on the Encyclopédie Anarchiste of the time. Since then, surveys in the digital world have become a bit more common with some from recent memory being conducted by Anarkismo, Libcom, a survey from some South African anarchists, over Reddit, and even some Google Forms here and there. Listed below are 13 questions taken from the new anarchist survey that was recently created and shared as an article on ANEWS.

Proposal for an Anarchist Survey

From The Libertarian Labyrinth

In 1926, “Los Iconoclastas” of Steubenville, Ohio conducted an international survey of anarchists, who were asked to provide answers to eight questions related to the present state and future prospects of the anarchist movement. Then in 1828, Emma Goldman and Alexander Berkman circulated a similar survey, in preparation for a gathering of prominent anarchists that, ultimately, did not take place. This was, of course, also the period during which the first section of the Encyclopédie Anarchiste (1925–1934)—which shared some elements with the surveys, with its multiple entries on many subjects—was produced.
