When asked whether their parents had ever been divorced, there was no significant difference between furries and non-furries with regard to frequency. On average, furries have 1.7 siblings. Of furries with at least 1 sibling, more reported being the oldest child (47.5%) than either the youngest child (34.5%) or the middle child (18.0%). Approximately 15% of furries reported being an only child. Only 3.8% of furries report having any children, likely owing to their relatively young age or the nature of their relationships (single, non-married, non-committed). To test this, a potential follow-up question may ask whether furries are interested in one day having children.1

The co-founders of Furscience are deep in planning mode… lots of new research and publications in the pipeline!
It's really awesome to know that we furries have some support outside of just ourselves to get a better understanding of our community. Shout out to @furscience and the great work they do for our community both internally and with the public. https://twitter.com/furscience/status/1454525649817948168
@FusEldar @NotGyro @TwettirD @BlueFolf @HIGHY3NA We estimate 500k and 1.5 million furries worldwide. We have neat data comparing the brony and furry fandoms. Brony samples aged every year, but furry samples didn’t. It could indicate younger furries are coming into the fandom yearly/sampling. Conventions seem to be growing, too.
Our Photographers are working their hardest to deliver the Fursuit Group Photo as soon as possible! For now, enjoy a sneak peak featuring our GoHs and Special Guest (@iPadunk, Zipper, @Furscience, and @UncleKage!)
