The Scottish Government currently does not have information on the experiences of transgender people in relation to housing and regeneration.

 
  • A Scottish Transgender Alliance survey in 2012 found that 22% of respondents owned their own property, with 11% renting privately as a joint tenant and nine percent renting privately as a single tenant.
  • Most respondents lived in a city (53%), with a further 20% living in a town near a city; only 23% lived in an area that they described as rural.
