Welcome to the Aotearoa New Zealand Trans and Non-Binary Health Survey, Counting Ourselves.

Counting Ourselves is an anonymous community-led health survey for trans and non-binary people living in Aotearoa New Zealand. The survey was live from 21 June until 30 September 2018.

The project team has been analysing the large amount of really valuable information provided by our communities. Our Community Advisory Group met in February 2019 to discuss our first summary of the data, and identified additional questions they wanted to explore.  Some initial findings were presented at the Aotearoa NZ Trans Health Symposium on Saturday 4 May. The Counting Ourselves report will be launched in late September 2019. 

Look out for updates on our Facebook page and in the News section of this website.
