CODE 3 Gender other/diverse
This code may include a person that does not fall within the traditional binary notions of sex and gender (male and females). This may include people who identify as a gender different to their birth sex or as neither male nor female. Other terms commonly associated include trans, transgender, transsexual, gender queer, pan-gendered, androgynous and inter-gender. Some cultures may have their own terms for gender identities outside male and female.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics has commenced a review of its Sex Standard. See Review of the Sex Standard/Potential new Gender Standard.
