Best Practices in Measuring Gender Identity in Population-Based Surveys
Gary J. Gates, University of California, Los Angeles
The GenIUSS group (Gender Identity in U.S. Surveillance), convened by the Williams Institute, UCLA, is a collaboration of scientists, scholars, and transgender leaders dedicated to increasing knowledge about gender-related measurement and promoting the inclusion of these measures on population-based surveys, with particular consideration for publicly-funded data collection efforts. GenIUSS group efforts will result in the creation of recommendations and best practices for gender identity questions and data collection. This presentation will describe those recommendations.
