Context: Separating sex and gender in the country’s biggest socioeconomic survey is imperative
About the Census 2011
What were the findings of this report?
Who is considered a transgender and non-binary person?
What are the problems associated with transgenders/Non-Binary people?
Access to toilets: They face problems in accessing public spaces like toilets according to their choice as the existing infrastructures mostly recognise ‘male’ and ‘female’.
Inadequate amount of data: We only have data on “others”. There is a need to have data on every subgroup for providing solutions.
According to a private report India for the Big Data for Development Network:-
Scarcity of information: We do not have proper information on how many intersex people live with their families, the percentage of Trans people who are homeless, their education and employment structures, types of housing they live in, migration rates and others.
What will be the solution to these problems?
Awareness: It was found out that during the 2011 Census, much of the population was not even aware of this third category in options to gender.
Add categories: Census should also include a ‘doesn’t want to disclose’ category for those who don’t want to associate with any gender trait or doesn’t want to divulge gender information.
