On this occasion , a question on the self-perception of gender identity was incorporated and the scope of the question on ethnic self -recognition (indigenous peoples and Afro-descendants) was extended to the entire population.
Regarding sex and gender identity, all people will be asked about their sex registered at birth (including category “X”) and how they consider themselves/self-perceive (“woman”, “trans/transvestite woman”, “male”, “male trans/trans masculinity”, “non-binary”, “other identity/none of the above”).
Regarding ethnic self-recognition, the entire population will be asked if they recognize themselves as indigenous or descendants of indigenous or native peoples, clarifying the people and, furthermore, if they speak and/or understand the language of that declared people.
These new variables are in addition to basic queries on:
- Health coverage
