Cosponsor the LGBT Data Inclusion Act!

LGBT data collection has been under attack from the new administration. In March, HHS decided to eliminate questions
about gender identity and sexual orientation from a survey on older Americans. The current lack of population-based data on the LGBT community inhibits the creation of sound public policy as well as the delivery of effective programs and services to all who
live in this country. Expanding and improving data collection and analysis about LGBT people is essential to better understanding the issues affecting our communities and to improve the health and well-being of all of our families.

DEADLINE EXTENDED: Oppose the Erasure of LGBT People from Federal Surveys

Over the course of the last 16 months, federal surveys and other data collections have slowly stopped asking about sexual orientation and/or gender identity (SOGI). This includes data collection about teen crime victims, homeless youth, and older Americans.

needs of LGBT people.
