Germany Launches Its Largest Survey on Discrimination

By Stephen Fuchs on

Germany’s Federal Anti-Discrimination Agency, die Antidiskriminierungsstelle des Bundes (ADS), launched what is being considered the country’s largest survey on the experiences of discrimination on Tuesday. That agency is calling for all Germans over the age of 14 to take the online or written survey in order to get a more complete picture of where the country can improve in the fight against discrimination.

“Nobody may be discriminated against in Germany, just because someone has a disability, is “too old” or “too young” or has a history of immigration. Also, discrimination on grounds of sex, sexual orientation, or religion are not allowed,” ADS said in a statement. “The survey aims to provide a most precise overview of experiences of discrimination in Germany.”

Initial results of the survey will be made available to the public in 2016, with more detailed statistics being presented to the German Bundestag in 2017.
