dc.description.abstractThis chapter discusses how common it is to identify as transgender. Clinical studies have traditionally shown low prevalence rates of transgender people with more recent studies provide higher prevalence rates of transgender people than older studies. Clinical studies only provide data on transgender people who can and want to access transgender health services. In contrast, population studies have found considerably higher prevalence rates of transgender people than clinical studies. Population studies may be more reliable in facilitating true prevalence rates of transgender people in society. More tolerant societies provide higher prevalence rates of transgender people than less tolerant societies.
