“Abolishing the sterilization requirement for legal gender changes – Impact on selection into treatment, health, and earnings”
Ylva Moberg, Rinni Norlinder (, Lucas Tilley, Emma von Essen
In 2013, Sweden abolished the requirement to be sterilized before being able to change legal gender marker. We use detailed population wide register data, including information on medical diagnoses and socioeconomic variables, to study the impact of the abolishment on the selection into gender affirming health care, and the health and labor market outcomes of those who go through gender transition. Our analysis is carried out under the lens of the dual forms of oppression – based on gender and being trans – that may face transgender people in different ways as they change legal gender. Preliminary results indicate that many more seek gender affirming care and change their legal gender when sterilization is no longer needed to do so. Without this demand, younger people, and more persons who were assigned female at birth, seek gender affirming care and change their legal gender. Effects on earnings and health are thus far inconclusive.

“Gender Identity and Access to Higher Education”
I. Maupin and Bryan McCannon (
Abstract: Our research examines the potential gender identity discrimination within higher education. An audit study was conducted by sending emails to admission counselors, where the messages varied in the inclusion of gender pronouns in the signature line. The results indicate a higher response rate for emails which included preferred pronouns, with a response rate increase of approximately four percentage points, regardless of the type of pronoun used. This suggests a preference for students that are more progressive in their thinking. We engage in text analysis and show that responses to inquiries with pronouns received more friendly responses receiving more use of exclamation marks, emojis/emoticons, and from a topic modeling algorithm were less likely to be strictly replies explaining the admission process. Finally, we apply machine learning to identify key institution attributes that are useful in predicting heterogeneous responses, and to identify the attributes of institutions where negative discrimination is likely to occur.

“Dynamics in Employment and Income Before and After Transgender Transitioning: Evidence from Dutch Administrative Data”
Elisa de Weerd ( with John Cawley and Hans van Kippersluis
Transgender individuals on average have lower socioeconomic and health outcomes. This paper estimates the changes in labor market and health outcomes before and after legal gender transitioning. Using individual-level administrative panel data from the Netherlands over the period 2014-2022, we identify nearly 6,500 legal gender transitions, defined as the change of gender marker on one's birth certificate.  Data on employment and health care utilization are drawn from administrative records. Using an event study approach with a sample of the general population serving as controls, we find changes in economic outcomes after transitioning, and important differences between those transitioning female-to-male (FTM) versus male-to-female (MTF). For both groups, employment and earned income decrease in the years preceding their legal gender transition. They differ, however, in dynamics after transitioning. For those transitioning FTM, there are increases in employment and income 5 or more years after transitioning; in contrast, for those transitioning MTF, employment and income remain significantly lower 3-4 years after transitioning, and are not significantly higher 5 or more years post-transition. The results provide information about dynamics in economic outcomes around legal gender transitions, and demonstrate that there can be meaningful differences for those transitioning FTM versus MTF.

“Implications of the Decline in LGBT Rights for Population Mental Health: Evidence from Polish ‘LGBT-free zones’”
Chad Meyerhoefer (, Bingjin Xue, and Anna PoznaƄska
We investigate the consequences of anti-LGBT laws in Poland for suicide attempts and fatalities by applying border-area difference-in-differences models to county-level data. We find that annual suicide attempts increased by 16%, or 5 attempts per 100k capita, after the enactment of anti-LGBT statutes. This rise in suicide attempts was concentrated among men, and was associated with 11 additional suicides per 100k individuals aged 30-49. We also find an increase in suicide attempts in areas that deliberated, but subsequently rejected anti-LGBT resolutions, providing evidence that stigmatization of minority groups leads to declines in population mental health.

“Transgender Stratification Economics: Empirical Evaluation of Intersectional Effects in the 2015 Transgender Survey”
Robert Haggar (
Research on the economic status of transgender status has found that transgender people face pervasive discrimination from both state and non-state actors.  This paper builds upon the growing labor-economics of transgender people (Carpenter, Eppink, and Gonzales 2020; Carpenter, Lee, and Nettuno 2022; Shannon 2022) but breaks with it by considering economic precarity more broadly.  By incorporating insights from intersectional theory and Marxian Feminism, this paper seeks to argue that economic marginalization and social oppression reinforce and enable one another.  Following the intersectional methods of stratification economics, this paper compares the economic marginality of transgender people to the US population across income distributions and labor force status using the 2015 United States Transgender Survey and the 2015 American Community Survey.  Transgender individuals are clustered in precarious labor force statuses which are characterized by low income.  This clustering is more pronounced for transgender women, nonbinary people, and racially marginalized people.  These transgender individuals, alongside those with disabilities and those who have experienced workplace discrimination due to their gender identity, are far more likely to engage in low-income self-employment, sex work, and illegal employment.  This is the first research, to the author’s knowledge, to provide quantitative analyses of the factors contributing to engagement in sex work for transgender individuals in the United States.

“Transition to College and Disparities among LGBTQ+ Students: Survey Evidence from the High School Class of 2023”
Christina  Sun (
As college education becomes increasingly more important and offers a wide range of economic and social benefits (Chan, 2016), the transition from high school to college is an especially important milestone for many young adults. Existing research suggests that students from historically underserved groups are also the ones likely facing the most obstacles during their transition to college (Goldrick-Rab et al., 2007). One such group is Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ+) students, whose transition to college has not been well-studied in part due to a dearth of data. In this paper, we provide direct evidence on the experience of LGBTQ+ students prior to college matriculation, leveraging survey data collected from a large sample of graduating high school seniors with a special focus on documenting the supports, challenges, and disparities facing gender and sexual minority students. Preliminary results show that gender and sexual minority students report worse social experiences in high school, and have markedly different patterns of college major choices and concerns about college from their cisgender, heterosexual peers.

“Silence to Solidarity: Using Group Dynamics to Reduce Anti-Transgender Discrimination in India”
Duncan Webb (
Individual-level discrimination is often attributed to deep-seated prejudice that is difficult to change. But at the societal level, we sometimes observe rapid reductions in discriminatory preferences, suggesting that communication about a minority might drive such shifts. I examine whether discrimination can be reduced by two types of communication about a minority: (i) horizontal communication between majority-group members, or (ii) top-down communication from agents of authority (e.g., the legal system). I run a field experiment in urban India (N=3,397) that measures discrimination against a marginalized community of transgender people. Participants are highly discriminatory: in a control condition, they sacrifice 1.9x their daily food expenditure to avoid hiring a transgender worker to deliver groceries to their home. But horizontal communication between cisgender participants sharply reduces discrimination: participants who were earlier involved in a group discussion with two of their neighbors no longer discriminate on average, even when making private post-discussion choices. This effect is 1.7x larger than the effect of top-down communication, informing participants about the legal rights of transgender people. The discussion’s effects are not driven by virtue signalling or correcting a misperceived norm. Instead, participants appear to persuade each other to be more pro-trans, partly because pro-trans participants are the most vocal in discussions.

“Labor Market Outcomes of Same-Sex Couples in Countries with Legalized Same-Sex Marriage”
Honorata Bogusz ( ) and Jan Gromadzki
We study the labor market outcomes of same-sex couples using data from large representative household surveys. We assess the quality of the data on same-sex couples in 18 high- and middle-income countries that have legalized same-sex marriage. In our detailed analysis, we use high-quality data representing more than two-thirds of the world’s population with access to same-sex marriage on three continents. Same-sex couples are characterized by higher labor force participation rates and more hours worked than different-sex couples, largely due to the differences in the probability of having a child. Men in same-sex couples have a much higher risk of unemployment than men in different-sex couples. These unemployment gaps cannot be explained by individual and household characteristics.

“The Gender Minority Gaps in Confidence and Self-Evaluations”
Billur Aksoy (
A rich literature explores gender differences between men and women, but an increasing share of the population identifies their gender in some other way. We explore the confidence and self-evaluations of gender minorities. Using data from roughly 10,000 students and 1,500 adults, we compare gender minorities to those who identify as male or female and document “gender minority gaps.” On a math and science test, gender minorities are less confident and provide less favorable self-evaluations than equally performing males. Among students, similar gaps arise between gender minorities and females. Additional results reveal that gender minority gaps are domain specific.

“Socio-Economic Disparities in Latin America among Same-Sex and Different-Sex Couples”
Ercio Munoa (
This paper exploits full-count population censuses from several countries in Latin America that contain information that allows the identification of same-sex couples through the question about the sex of each household member and the relationship to the head. Once the population of interest is identified in the census data, we characterize them and document existing socioeconomic disparities using the information available in the questionnaire.

“Ageing queer bodies – and the drag of Austria’s recent history”
Karin Schoenpflug (
Based on qualitative interviews with LGBTIQ+ people aged 60 plus, this paper explores the expectations, foreseeable adversities, and desires for possible queer living arrangements in retirement and (very) old age. The study differentiates between the subgroups in the LGBTQI+ universe, and also employs an intersectional perspective, considering a diversity of situations based on race, class and family/social capital and networks. Next to the perspectives of the ageing queer community, the study also includes interviews with (queer) old age care personnel, social security providers, and community experts in Austria, Germany and Sweden talking about their perspectives on specific needs and public and private provisions for this segment of an ageing population. On a meta-level, the findings are linked to a time-line of significant events and periods for the different living cohorts of Austria’s queer community, showing how a rapidly changing historical background (ranging from the total ban of homosexuality until 1971, the AIDS-crisis of the 1980s, the “second” women’s movement, the first (trans-inclusive) pride march in 1996, gay marriage in 2019 and the ongoing genital mutilation of intersex children) leads to very different positions when it comes to imagining life as an old(er) queer person.

“Non-binary Gender Economics: The Preferences and Behaviors of Non-Binary Individuals”
Keith Marzilli Ericson ( with Katherine Coffman, Lucas Copffman
Previous research has documented male-female gender differences in economically important contexts, including economic preferences (e.g. risk tolerance and altruism), workplace behaviors (e.g. competitiveness and task assignment), and beliefs (e.g. self-confidence). However, there is little work examining gender minorities in these domains. Using best practices for eliciting gender identity, we recruit and identify a large sample of non-binary individuals, men, and women from the US. Our survey instrument adapts many existing paradigms used to identify gender differences in economic preferences, workplace behaviors, beliefs, and experienced discrimination, expanding coverage of these key economic measures to a broader, more inclusive sample. In addition, we elicit beliefs about how men, women, and non-binary people compare on all of these measures, allowing us to measure stereotypes and (in)accuracy of beliefs.

“How do same-sex couples affect central cities? “
Jooyoung Kim (
Abstract: In the United States, same-sex couples disproportionately live in central cities of metropolitan areas, and their presence has often been reported as an indicator of imminent gentrification. In this paper, I suggest two mechanisms that attract same-sex couples into central cities: income elasticity of housing demand and different preferences for downtown/suburban amenities including child-related amenities and cultural tolerance. Analysis based on American Community Survey data provides evidence for these mechanisms. Further analysis using a shift-share IV shows that metropolitan areas with a higher initial share of same-sex couples downtown experienced a larger increase in average individual income downtown between 2010 and 2017.
