UIS Survey Says Attitudes Toward Transgendered Americans Changing for the Positive

A national survey shows that attitudes toward the rights and treatment of transgendered Americans is changing for the positive.


The survey, conducted by the University of Illinois – Springfield, asked around 800 people online if they felt that transgendered Americans deserved the same rights as the rest of the population, with 71% of respondents saying that they do.

However, support of the idea to use public money to help provide medical treatment for transgendered individuals received less than 45% support.

UIS associate professor of political science Jason Pierceson says that the survey may have been swayed by a need for more information about the transgender community.
