Membership by the Numbers
NASW invites members to complete member profiles by providing information about their personal and professional identities. Responses to demographic questions are always optional, but members’ completed profiles are very helpful for NASW to understand members’ practice needs and the ways members identify themselves. Personal demographics also help NASW ensure that the volunteer social work leadership of the association is representative of the members we serve.
Practice and demographic options were developed with input from members and from NASW’s national committees of volunteer social worker leaders. Members who have suggested changes may send to Membership@socialworkers.org with Demographics in the subject line. This data represents NASW active membership as of August 2023. Not all members have completed their profiles. Members can identify up to three practice selections, so the reported practice percentages are greater than the total membership.
