Counting Ourselves is an anonymous health survey designed by and for trans and non-binary people living in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Our second survey was open from 1 September to 14 December 2022.

Thank you so much to everyone who filled out our 2022 survey or supported others to do that. We have more than twice as many responses compared to our first survey in 2018.

Our team started looking at your responses as soon as the survey closed. We want to have a community report available as soon as possible for our communities to use to push for change. We are aiming to launch it in the first half of 2024.
