|AFS Member Survey Reports|
Approximately every five years since 2002, the American Folklore Society has surveyed its members to gather demographic and opinion data that index the state of the Society and field, and to inform the Executive Board as it considers actions to support AFS, its members, and the field of folklore studies.
