Question development

The Sexual Identity Project aimed to develop questioning to be used on social surveys and for equality monitoring purposes.

A prototype question was developed using:

  • exploratory work (including use of focus groups) to gain an understanding of the concept of sexual identity and issues relating to acceptability and survey administration, and

  • a review of other surveys that have included a question on sexual identity, both in the UK and internationally

Project reports are available in PDF in the 'Downloads' section.
