User Story

As a data analyst who wishes to respect individuals' gender preferences, it would be great to have a data meaning built into Dataiku DSS of type Gender that was not strictly binary. Out of the box being able to respect a broader set of identities.

COS:

  • By default, a Gender other than "M' or 'F' should not come up as an error in the data column.

    A good start might be to add NB as a valid value

    I’m wondering if this meaning should be in alignment with some ISO or other standard.

    ISO/IEC 5218 is an example of such standard however is clearly out of date with current usage. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO/IEC_5218

    And DSS does not use that standard any way.

    Does anyone know of a standard like ISO 5218 that has caught up with current usages?
