Trans data for region

SCOTLAND’S Census 2022 found that 362 people in Dumfries and Galloway identified as trans or had a trans history, according to data published by National Records of Scotland (NRS).

The census included a question on trans status or history for the first time in 2022. This was a voluntary question for people aged 16 and over.

The figure equates to 0.29 per cent of people aged 16 and over. Over a third of trans people in the region were aged 16 to 24, with nearly a fifth (19.6 per cent ) aged 25 to 34.

In addition, NRS has published census data relating to sexual orientation, also included as a voluntary question for the first time in 2022. It found that there were 3052 people living in the region who identified as a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, 0.66 per cent of people aged 16 and over.
