Counting Ourselves: First comprehensive national NZ survey on transgender health and wellbeing

October 11, 2019 at 12:18 PM

From the NZFVC

The first report has been released from the Counting Ourselves survey on the health and wellbeing of trans and non-binary people.

Counting ourselves: The health and wellbeing of trans and non-binary people in Aotearoa New Zealand provides an overview of key findings from the survey.

This includes data on sexual violence, and some abusive relationship behaviours specifically related to being transgender or non-binary.

The survey found trans women, trans men and non-binary participants all reported high rates of experiencing sexual violence.

When comparing the results against the New Zealand Health Survey, participants had experienced someone having had sex with them against their will at rates two to three times higher than that for women in the general population and seven to 12 times higher than for men in the general population.

Disabled participants were more likely (49%) to report that someone had sex with them against their will.

Participants who reported this were twice as likely to have attempted suicide in the past year (18%) than participants who did not report this (9%).
