Gender inequality: Nonbinary transgender people in the workplace

By Skylar Davidson, 2016

This study uses the National Transgender Discrimination Survey to evalu- ate the employment outcomes of nonbinary transgender people (those who identify as a gender other than man or woman). Regression analyses indicate that being out as a nonbinary transgender person has different effects on nonbinary transgender people based on sex assigned at birth, with those assigned male at birth tending to be discriminated against in hiring but those assigned female at birth more likely to experience differential treatment once hired. Transgender women tend to have worse employment experiences than nonbinary transgender people and transgen- der men, the latter two tending to have similar outcomes.
