The ATLAS Collaboration consists of more than 5000 members, from about 100 different countries. This study presents data showing aspects of the regional, age and gender demographics of the collaboration, including the time evolution over the lifetime of the experiment. In particular the relative fraction of women is discussed, including their share of contributions, recognition and positions of responsibility, and showing how this depends on other demographic measures.
