Attitudes to Gender I Public Survey
Between October and December 2018 we ran an Attitudes to Gender survey which focused on asking questions to gain a better understanding of what legal gender status means for people, and whether it matters to individuals in their everyday lives. The UK Government ran a public consultation on possible reform to the Gender Recognition Act (2004) in England and Wales between July 2018 and the 22nd October 2018 which, although completely unrelated to this research project, meant that we had a large number of responses to our Attitudes to Gender survey; 3101 responses in total.
