This new clause would mean that if the census included a question on gender identity, it would have

 

to be written in such a way as to provide information about gender identity in different ethnic

 

groups.

the participation of homeless people in the Census so that data on sexual orientation and gender

 

identity includes information from people who are currently homeless.
