Why not use the already existing element AdministrativeGender from the HL7 Canada value set or is it meant to replace this concept?

      What exactly is the difference between Administrative Gender and the new proposed Recorded Sex

      As described here: https://build.fhir.org/patient.html#gender, we indicate that Admin Gender is an example of a Recorded Sex or Gender.  

       

      Are there concrete usage examples that demonstrate this difference and provide guidance for use.

      There is no difference - Admin Gender is a type of Recorded Sex or Gender.   We have an effort to make this clear with additional guidance and definitional changes.  

       

      The ultimate answer is that we've heard a lot of feedback that RSG is confusing and needs additional guidance and possibly restructuring.  Stay tuned for updates on where that goes (you might consider "watching" OTHER-2463 for a resolution).
