Defining and collecting sex/gender data in the Census: Queer conflicts, concept capture and category co-option

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract / Description of output

In this blog, we explore the forms of power and harm at play in attempts to quantify people through administrative processes of state data collection about sex and gender. In the current UK and Scottish context, we examine some of the sites for wider conflicts over constructions of sex and gender in civic life. Ultimately, we can see that queer, trans and non-binary lives, bodies, relationships, and communities often complicate the taken-for-granted processes through which the state manages those under its power.
