ABOUT THE SURVEY
The U.S. Trans Survey is the new name of the largest survey ever devoted to the lives and experiences of trans people. It is the follow up to the groundbreaking National Transgender Discrimination Survey (NTDS), which was developed by the National LGBTQ Task Force and NCTE and released in the 2011 report called Injustice at Every Turn.
The NTDS has been the source for data on trans people and has provided critical information for advocates, policymakers, media, and academics with over 15,000 media hits. The USTS will be conducted every 5 years to learn about trans people’s experiences over time, how things are changing, and what needs to be done to improve the lives of trans people.
The USTS is a survey for all trans identities, including trans, genderqueer, and non-binary people, and will be the largest and most diverse trans sample to date. The USTS is our community’s survey: the USTS data set and results will be available to community advocates, organizations, and researchers for years to come.
