Frequently Asked Questions

1. Where is your data sourced from?
Our database is constructed using 2001 and 2011 UK Census Data, together with multiple online sources and contributions from our 4,700,000 website visitors. 

2. How do you decide if a name is male, female or unisex?
We have taken a strict approach. If we see just one instance of a name appearing as both male and female, we categorise it as unisex. Whilst this means that a certain proportion of our database (7%) is unisex names, the benefit is that we are very confident about the genders attached to the remainder of the data.

3. Are names tagged by country or culture?
No. With increasing cross-border migration and globalisation, it is hard to determine the true origins of many names, so we havde decided not to do this. 

4. Who buys your data?
We have sold our data to over 500 clients, including eBay, Microsoft, the UN Refugee Agency as well as dozens of academic institutions.  

5. Is Payment Secure?
Yes, all payments are processed via PayPal.

6. How do the Lifetime Updates work?
When you check out with PayPal, we'll ask for your email address. Whenever we make an update to the database, we'll automatically send you the new version. 

7. Who is behind GenderChecker.com?
British entrepreneur Oliver Bridge launched the site in 2008. He also runs Cornerstone - one of the UK's top 10 startups. You can reach him via oliver@genderchecker.com.
