Only 10% of attendees at EAG were earning to give as their long-term plan for impact.

I'd be interested to learn more about this number. I assume some attendees were uncertain about their long-term plan? If so, some of these people may end up earning to give?

Also what do 80K's target percentages vs actual percentages look like for other EA career options?

In EA survey (https://eahub.org/sites/effectivealtruismhub.com/files/SurveyReport2015.pdf page 18) there was a question "What broad career path are you planning to follow?". Results: Direct charity / nonprofit work: 190; Earning to give: 512; Research: 362; None of these: 375; Didn't answer: 913.

Percentages:

  • Direct charity / nonprofit work: 190 / 2352 = 8%
  • Earning to give: 512 / 2352 = 22%
  • Research: 362 / 2352 = 15%
  • None of these: 375 / 2352 = 16%
  • Didn't answer: 913 / 2352 = 39%
