Supplementary notes

Since 2015, the SCV-survey (Socio-cultural movements in Flanders) by the study center of the Flemish government also includes questions on attitudes towards transgenders. The original survey consists of three parts: one part with background questions, one part with questions returning every two or three years, and a third part with questions on current affairs.

The original statement was: "U gaat liever niet om met mensen van wie niet duidelijk is of ze man of vrouw zijn."
