We invite UK architects to complete an Equality and Diversity (E&D) survey. Here you can ﬁnd the anonymised data we have collected.
It is important to note that E&D survey data may vary from Architects Register data. This is because every architect must provide certain, legally recognised information as part of the registration process. In contrast the E&D survey is voluntary, reflects how architects self-identify and includes different categories.
We recognise the importance of being as transparent as possible with information we hold. We hope this data is useful to policy makers and those that are able to effect social change. It also enables us to ensure our ways of working are in line with the Equality Act and as free from discrimination as possible.
The E&D survey has recently been revised so that the gender and sexuality categories are more inclusive. It has also being expanded to include socio-economic information as we feel this is an important trend to monitor. As we collect new data we will update the information here.
The information below is accurate as of 07 November 2023 and the next update will be Monday 4 December 2023.
The survey is optional and currently we hold E&D data for 83% of the Register.
In order to have as much insight as possible into the composition of the Architects Register, we encourage all UK architects to complete the E&D Survey.
Whether you’re providing information for the first time or you want to update your previous responses – you can complete the survey quickly and easily here.
If you need a reminder of your Unique ID number you can contact us and we’ll be happy to help.
You will need your registration number and ID code to access registrant services; these are found on the statutory notice or recent emails from us.
There are five categories not included in the above graphs due to the chart’s limitations, making it difficult to show the following categories on the graphics: Pakistani = 119; Caribbean = 102; Black Caribbean and White = 72; Black African and White = 67; Bangladeshi = 48; Any other Black background = 21
