It should be noted that the term 'Persons' is used in preference to 'Total' when presenting total population counts for both sex and gender.
Confidentiality issues may arise at various levels of dissemination if a small number of 'Other' responses are recorded. When this issue arises, it is recommended that 'Other' responses are alternately recoded to male and female, as supported by the United Nations Statistical Division 2010, Handbook on Population and Housing Census Editing, Revision 1, (Sections 346-347), with the methodology used clearly articulated in supporting documentation.
The sex variable and the gender variable do not require any supporting variables.
