Every Voice Counts! Results of the 2015 U.S. Transgender Survey

The 2015 U.S. Transgender Survey is the largest survey ever conducted to examine the experiences of trans adults in the United States, with nearly 28,000 participants. As the follow up to the groundbreaking 2008-09 National Transgender Discrimination Survey, the U.S. Transgender Survey (USTS) was conducted by the National Center for Transgender Equality in the summer of 2015 and saw unprecedented participation. The USTS covered a wide range of topics that reflect the lives and experiences of trans people, such as unemployment, housing, health care, HIV/AIDS, disabilities, immigration, sex work, and police interactions. This survey is proving to be the go-to resource for educating advocates, policymakers, educators, and the general public about trans people.
