The 2011 Venture Census results were released this week by the National Venture Capital Association (NVCA) and Dow Jones VentureSource.  This survey, first conducted in 2008, analyzes the demographics of venture capital professionals in the United States.  Although there was a small increase in ethnic diversity among current venture capitalists (an increase from 12 percent in 2008 to 13 percent in 2011), the number of women investor (non-administrative) professionals decreased from 14 percent in 2008 to 11 percent in 2011 while women administrative professionals accounted for 62 percent of the “non-investor” category.  Women did, however, make up the majority of venture capital firm CFOs.
