As requested by the United Nations General Assembly, a brief summary of UNGASS indicators for MSM based on EMIS data is also available in English and Russian.

The EMIS questionnaire was available online between June 4 and August 31, 2010.
It was promoted online and offline through media for gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM). Following the slogan "Be part of something huge!", more than 180,000 MSM living in Europe, and more than 160,000 MSM living in the 27 EU member states have completed the questionnaire.

EMIS is thus the largest international study ever conducted on homosexually active men. This strong response to a 20 minute survey demonstrates both a highly acceptable instrument and high community engagement.
