Club Penguin Army Census 2020 Results

ALASKA, CP Army Hub Headquarters – The 2020 Club Penguin Army Census was released just two and a half weeks ago. This year’s census saw a huge rise in responses, towering over the previous two censuses. What were the results?

The 2020 Club Penguin Army community census reached a record-breaking number of responses: an unprecedented 438. The administration thanks each and every troop, army leader, veteran, and community member for their much-appreciated responses. 438 people responded to the required questions, and a range of 328-415 people answered each of the optional questions. That being said, let’s get right into the results!

Required Questions

The required question portion of the census focuses mainly on army history and related subjects. Here we see the demographics of the community, from their Club Penguin history to their current army affiliation.

The difference in when we all started playing Club Penguin is surprisingly even, but the game and armies are, of course, very different. It’s also worth noting that 36 of the participants first started playing in 2020, compared to 61 in 2010.

Speaking of that 2020 difference, it really shows here! Nearly half of the participants first joined armies this year. 2019 and 2018 aren’t quite as full as 2020, but the CPPS era has shown its influence over the census. The current community, based on those who filled out the census, is from every year of CPA except 2007.

Unsurprisingly, the majority of the community is currently enlisted in an army. We wouldn’t be an army community without, well, army community members! However, veterans are everywhere you go, and you often can’t shake them.

Most of us were recruited from Club Penguin itself. The classic method seems to work the best, but that doesn’t stop Discord or Xat recruiters. Even real-life recruiters have some influence!

The Rebel Penguin Federation is today’s biggest army, so their influence over the “first army” category, along with how many 2020 recruits joined the community, is almost expected. Past and present armies still have a variety of recruits hanging around in 2020. Maybe some of those past armies will return someday!

The Rebels take the crown for most affiliated, but that doesn’t leave the Army of Club Penguin, Ice Warriors, or even unaffiliated community members out! The variety in these answers is reflected in both our Discord servers and CPA servers.

Following the precedent set by previous censuses, community members in Eastern Standard Time are the majority. It’s been said that armies were made for the EST timezone; maybe it’s true!

Optional Questions

The optional portion of the census was still filled out by over 400 people in total! This section focuses more on actual population demographics. Interestingly enough, we aren’t a community of genderless robots!

The first question of the optional portion shows a male majority in the community. This hasn’t changed since the 2014 census, but this time, women are no longer a mere 10% — now, women are closer to half. We also see a rise in members of the community who are neither male nor female — a portion that didn’t even exist on the 2014 census.

The average army member is now in the 18-21 range, which actually lines up with the 2014 census average age of 14! This group, making up a third of the community, doubles the second and third highest responses: 15- and 16-year-olds.

Once again like 2014, straight people dominate the community, but not to the extent they used to. Despite their two-thirds majority of the community, bisexuals and homosexuals have certainly made a name for themselves compared to the last census.

Like the 2014 census, the community is predominantly white — at the same time, as the rest of the census has shown, the community is diversifying itself greatly. Approximately 51% of the community is not white, but it is still divided greatly between other races.

2014 and 2020 show stark similarities in the religious section: Christians and atheists/agnostics are the two majorities in the community. Again, though, the religious demographics of the community have varied since the 2014 census.

Concluding the census is an exciting look-alike! Political demographics are almost the same as the 2014 demographics, though this time the “Other” category and Libertarian have somewhat swapped. These similarities are interesting, especially seeing the age demographics lining up with the 2014 demographics as well. How could they be connected?

The Army Hub administration would like to once again thank each and every participant. This survey saw huge changes made from 2014 — maybe we grew up, maybe we opened the community more. Whatever the reason, this census is living proof that we never really forget about armies or their impact, no matter how old they are or what army we’re from. Furthermore, it’s worth questioning what the census results have to say about our community’s future. Where could we be in another three years? In a community like ours going through such unprecedented changes, it’s hard to tell. It’s a rag-tag corner of the Internet worth fighting for, not over.

Thank you again for all of the responses to this census. Nothing we do would be possible without you.
