star this property answer text <p>​The information requested falls within the responsibility of the UK Statistics Authority. I have asked the Authority to reply.</p><p><strong><br>Letter from John Pullinger CB, National Statistician, to The Lord Stoddart of Swindon, Lord, dated 9 July 2018.</strong></p><p> </p><p>Dear Lord Stoddart,</p><p> </p><p>As National Statistician and Chief Executive of the UK Statistics Authority, I am replying to your Parliamentary Question asking what proportion of the UK population identifies as being LGBT or transgender <strong>(HL9192)</strong>.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>The Office for National Statistics (ONS) estimated that 2% of the UK population aged 16 and over in 2016 identified as Lesbian, Gay or Bisexual (LGB). LGB refers to sexual orientation, which is an umbrella concept encompassing sexual identity, attraction and behaviour.</p><p> </p><p>Trans or Transgender are terms used to refer to people whose gender identity differs from their sex assigned at birth.</p><p> </p><p>ONS does not currently collect any information on gender identity on any of our social surveys.</p><p> </p><p>In the 2021 Census Topic Consultation, data users showed a clear requirement for gender identity for policy development and service planning; especially in relation to the provision of health services. In addition, respondents also identified a requirement for the protected characteristic of gender reassignment in relation to fulfilling equality duties under the Equality Act 2010. The Gender Identity topic report[1] on the consultation findings provides further information.</p><p> </p><p>ONS is currently undertaking work, research and testing to inform our position on this topic and help us to determine whether and how best to meet user needs for information on gender identity. Plans and current work are detailed on our website[2].</p><p> </p><p>The Government Equalities Office (GEO) have recently published an LGBT action plan following the Government’s national survey of LGBT people. The action plan and results from the survey can be found on their website[3].</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Yours sincerely,</p><p><strong>John Pullinger</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>[1]<a href="https://www.ons.gov.uk/file?uri=/census/censustransformationprogramme/consultations/the2021censusinitialviewoncontentforenglandandwales/topicreport03genderidentity.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.ons.gov.uk/file?uri=/census/censustransformationprogramme/consultations/the2021censusinitialviewoncontentforenglandandwales/topicreport03genderidentity.pdf</a></p><p>[2] <a href="https://www.ons.gov.uk/methodology/classificationsandstandards/measuringequality/genderidentity" target="_blank">https://www.ons.gov.uk/methodology/classificationsandstandards/measuringequality/genderidentity</a></p><p>[3] <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/lgbt-action-plan-2018-improving-the-lives-of-lesbian-gay-bisexual-and-transgender-people" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/lgbt-action-plan-2018-improving-the-lives-of-lesbian-gay-bisexual-and-transgender-people</a></p>
