Surveying the Experiences of Transgender People 

In 2015, the National Center for Transgender Equality conducted the largest survey examining the lives of transgender people.  More than 27,000 respondents from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, and overseas military bases answered questions about their experiences with social determinants of health such as education, employment, family life, health care, housing, and interactions with the criminal justice system.  Information from the survey fills in some of the large gaps in research and provides critical tools for researchers, policymakers, and advocates seeking to eliminate disparities.  Though it’s estimated that at least three million LGBT people live in rural America, there remains a need for data from rural areas.  To that end, the National Center for Transgender Equality asks for volunteers living in rural areas to take the 2022 US Transgender Survey.
