Original title: LHBT-monitor 2018

This report examines the life situation of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people. The following question is central: ‘To what extent does the life situation of LGBT? people differ from that of cisgender (non-transgender) heterosexual people, and to what extent has there been a change in their life situation in recent years?’ Various aspects of life are examined, such as the areas of safety and health. The LGBT Monitor 2018 is based exclusively on large-scale, representative population studies: the SCP Life Situation Index, the Safety Monitor, the National Health Survey, the National Survey on Employment Conditions, the Sex Survey among people aged 25 years and under, and on registration data.
