The State of
The “State of Voiceover in 2021 Survey” was put together by an independent group of voice actors. It is sponsored by Voice Actors of NYC, which is a not for profit community group for voice actors living in the New York City area and beyond.
The survey was published on January 15, 2021, and closed on February 1st 2021. The survey was available in both English and Spanish. 1244 responses were collected in total.
The participants in this survey came from 3 main sources:
- A few unsponsored posts on Twitter and Reddit
- Voiceover-specific facebook groups including but not limited to Voice Actors of NYC, The Gardner Collective, VO School Podcast, Women in Voiceover, VO Mamas, Voiceover Pros, Voiceover Community, Voiceover Universe, VOpreneur, VOcation- Voiceover, and more.
- An email list of over 800 voice actors with professional home studios
The most encouraging trend we saw in the data collection process was that the results stayed roughly the same after we reached 250 responses. From the 250th response to the 1244th response the data was nearly unchanged. This tells us we have a fairly representative sample of voice actors.
