National Transgender Discrimination Survey

national trans discrimination survey

In 2011, NCTE and the National LGBTQ Task Force released the National Transgender Discrimination Survey. Interviews with over 6,400 transgender and gender non-conforming people make it the largest such study ever conducted.  The study has been a game changer—both for our policy work and for cultural change. For the first time, we were able to quantify the discrimination and violence transgender people face. NCTE is now working on a second iteration of the survey to be released in 2016 that will measure how things are now and how they have changed over the past five years. The findings from NTDS are available in multiple reports that cover specific subpopulations and issues.
