Corporate cage-free campaigns aren't considered among the “near-termist human-centric OpenPhil grants”... they're instead in a separate "animal-inclusive" granting bucket that will be evaluated later.

In this analysis, I'm looking specifically at people who do report donations that are distinctly and clearly inconsistent with pledge keeping. "Quiet pledge-keepers" who do not report any data would not be included in this analysis because they would not be reporting data to the EA Survey. So the phenomena I report here cannot be mere instances of quiet pledge-keeping.

As for the point "total number of people ceasing reporting donations (and very likely ceasing keeping the pledge)" which refers to GWWC analysis that may refer to quiet pledge-keeping, it is impossible to know to what degree people do or do not keep the pledge but fail to report it. My intuition, shared by others, is that people who don't return GWWC's emails asking for whether people keep the pledge are likely not keeping the pledge, but I agree there can be exceptions to this (such as maybe you) and that perhaps there are actually a lot of quiet pledge-keepers.

I'm personally much more skeptical of the work. Most notably, the paper's results are suspiciously clear-cut -- all the of treated ants showed the mirror test behavior and none of the control ants did. Generally mirror self-recognition tests are not this straightforward and it is common, even with chimps, for some tested subjects to not pass. Unless ants are potentially smarter than chimps, I don't think we should expect results this clear. Instead, this suggests something in the study may have gone wrong.

Also Max Carpendale, then a contract researcher with Rethink Priorities, pointed out to me that one of the authors of the paper, Marie-Claire Caemmarts, has a history of making dubious claims outside mainstream scientific consensus. For example, she has published research that suggests cell phone radiation and Wi-Fi are damaging to human health, for which she has received criticism of bad science.

I checked and ~22% of GWWC members* did not donate more than 5% of their income in 2017, so even assuming taxes accounted for a large portion of the issue, there are still a lot of people who are not reporting data consistent with keeping the GWWC pledge.

Also of note is that the SlateStarCodex 2017 survey offered an EA ID question in addition to a mental health inventory (David links to the 2019 SSC Survey which sadly does not have the EA ID question). We benchmarked the 2017 EA Survey to the SSC 2017 survey and found the EA populations to be mostly similar.

I'd strongly urge the OP or anyone interested in this topic to dig into the SSC 2017 survey's EA population and investigate mental health statistics... I imagine the likelihood of oversampling people with mental health concerns would be lower (though not nonexistent) there.

It will vary wildly by what you count as "EA-related". Also, I think it will be more meaningful to break it down by cause area.

In Global Poverty and Economic Development, I think EA (e.g., GiveWell) is noticeable but small percentage of all plausibly EA-related activities in the space (e.g., GAVI does quite cost-effective things with billions of dollars).

In Animal Welfare, I think EA (e.g., OpenPhil + ACE + Animal EA Fund) is roughly ~1/3rd of total EA-related spending (though, again, varies a lot by what counts as "EA-related").

For the various x-risks / long-term stuff, I know the least about what the donors in the space are like, but OpenPhil feels significant. Also, Ben Delo joining the scene really complicates the estimate.

As a typical EA nitpicker, I will avoid answering your substantive question and instead point out that your data may be missing some areas - e.g., independent EA donors (probably a few tens of millions per year) and Founders Pledge / Effective Giving (unknown, but potentially tens to hundreds of millions per year toward EA stuff). Still, I do expect OpenPhil to be a large percentage of EA capital allocation.

In general, I think it’s most helpful to look at numbers excluding paid traffic to give a better sense of organic growth rates. As Aaron notes, this helps explain the EA newsletter trajectory, and it’d be interesting to see how excluding paid traffic might affect the 80k traffic numbers as well.

I think this is a good idea but I'm unsure if this data is available. I can try to make a better effort to find more data sources that do not include paid traffic for next year.

Total operational spending by EA orgs could be a helpful perspective on how inputs to EA are changing over time; the current metrics are all focused on outputs, and it would be nice to relate the two.

This is a metric I actually put some effort into collecting for this year - I tried to make a basket of orgs that have been around since ~2014 and made publicly accessible budgets, but it proved very time consuming to collect and I felt like it was potentially misleading due to orgs being excluded or orgs not publishing clear budgets.

My hope is that including "EA Funds payouts" could help capture some of this. One thing I really ought to have included but for some reason didn't think to is also total OpenPhil grants (not just to GiveWell or excluding GiveWell) as this may also capture some of the growth in the broader EA space.

You might be interested in a new set of EA growth metrics that I compiled. It argues that EA growth is indeed slowing down (though EA has not stopped growing) and this could be mostly (but not fully) explained by the "high fidelity" model. In particular, I think the "high fidelity" model may have failed if we also see a plateau or decline in some metrics like career changes or donations made, which may happen soon (but hasn't clearly happened yet).

This is the key question and more research is needed.

Generally, my guess is that in most cases the answer is very mundane: people's careers change, they graduate college and are no longer involved with other EAs, they get busier and don't have time for EA engagement anymore, they have a kid and focus on raising them, they move towns and get involved with something else, and/or people's fascinations just change even with no life changes, etc... it is easy to identify in a movement and then drift out to something else. For one anecdotal example, in 2009-2011 I strongly identified with the atheist movement but then drifted out due to an increasing lack of interest (and a newfound interest in EA).

It might be possible to use the email method to identify particular people who do not return and see how they compare to the population that does return, but I am nervous that these populations are just hopelessly confounded by people changing email addresses or general noise with small samples.

Insofar as we can, we could also try to ask people who don't come back for their reasons, but these people by definition are hard to contact (since they left) and sampling will be likely biased. I know EA London made one attempt to do something like this but it felt fairly inconclusive.

We're also working on understanding invertebrate sentience and wild animal welfare - maybe not "cause X" because other EAs are aware of this cause already, but I think will help unlock important new interventions.

Additionally, we're doing some analysis of nuclear war scenarios and paths toward non-proliferation. I think this is understudied in EA, though again maybe not "cause X" because EAs are already aware of it.

Lastly, we're also working on examining ballot initiatives and other political methods of achieving EA aims - maybe not cause X because it isn't a new cause area, but I think it will help unlock important new ways of achieving progress on our existing causes.
