By asking transgender people to give their views on welfare we hope to increase the visibility of their perspective. We believe that trust can be studied via social constructivist theory and will thereby use Rothstein and Stolle’s theory on generalized trust and social psychology in our analysis. Our underlying survey is positioned between Health Surveys and Welfare Studies and rests on two pillars: institutional sociology and social psychology. Our results confirm previous research concerning the determinants of trust. Our results show that transgender trust in welfare is decided by the same factors as the populations trust at large. (Less)
