Given that less than 1% of the UK population identifies as transgender and people whoidentify as transgender are under-represented in the industry, it is difficult to provide as manyinsights about transgender people as we can about other characteristics. Our data collectionand reporting system adheres to strong privacy and anonymity principles, which means thatdata is redacted when sample sizes are low (i.e. fewer than 10 people from our collectedsample identifying with this characteristic).Diamond collects the most diversity forms from Entertainment, Factual, and FactualEntertainment programmes. In Factual and Factual Entertainment, we note small increasescompared to last year in the proportion of contributions, both on and off-screen, made bythose who identify as transgender
