Next DIJ Method Talk on surveys in Japan

© Daiki Hiramori & Saori Kamano

In recent years, issues involving sexual and gender minorities have increasingly attracted attention in Japan. Addressing the lack of data to understand social inequality based on sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI), Daiki Hiramori and Saori Kamano developed questions to measure SOGI on population-based surveys under the research project “Demography of Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity: Building a Foundation for Research in Japan.” In their talk, they will report the results of a population-based survey and present findings from their preparatory studies and an experimental web survey. The speakers will conclude their talk by discussing two approaches to population sexuality to explore the possibility of a queer demography. Details and registration here
