Reduce inequality within and among countries

Indicator 10.x.3: Whether or not there are centralized protocols for updating sex/ gender in official certifications

Non-Statistical Indicator

The Gender Recognition Act of 2017 (SB179) allows transgender, intersex and nonbinary people to obtain state-issued identity documents that accurately reflect their gender identity, making California the first state to not require people to officially identify as “male” or “female.”

This table provides metadata for the actual indicator available from City of Los Angeles statistics closest to the corresponding global SDG indicator. Please note that even when the global SDG indicator is fully available from Angeleno statistics, this table should be consulted for information on national methodology and other Angeleno-specific metadata information.
