In the household type question, the gender only matters if the client is an adult in a single-person household. If the client is a child or an adult in a multi-person household (regardless of whether that household includes only adults or adults and children), the client's gender has no bearing on where the client is reported. If, on the other hand, the client is an adult in a single-person household, the client must be categorized by gender as either an "Individual adult male" or an "Individual adult female." Transgender adults in single-person households should be classified based on the gender they identify (with transgender female to male corresponding to male and transgender male to female corresponding to female). And if there is an adult in a single-person household with a gender that is missing or "other," then the household type would also be missing because the person could not be classified as either male or female.
