LGBT Ireland is insisting that the Central Statistics Office (CSO) include LGBTQ+ questions about sexual orientation and gender identity on the 2027 Census. A national Census of Ireland’s population is conducted every five years to help provide an image of social and living conditions over points of time. It includes questions about age, sex, education, employment, residence, and family. Proposed questions include “What is your sex assigned at birth?”, “Were you born with a variation of sex characteristics (sometimes called ‘intersex’ or ‘DSD’)?”, “What best describes your gender?” and “What is your sexual orientation?”. The charity makes the case that without capturing LGBTQ+ data, Ireland is at risk of falling behind other countries that already do this in their Census.
