Currently the Department use a variety of methods, and underlying code sets, for the collection of gender and / or sex across our data collections. As a result of the response options allowed within some data collections, alongside the potential to view changes in reported gender over time, the Department have taken the decision to treat gender and sex as special category data. As a result, we now ask all applicants to provide justification for receiving and using this this data in their analysis/research.
