UCLA Law School's Williams Institute has tabulated information gleaned from the 2010 census and has posted information from all 50 states (and the District of Columbia) regarding same-sex households. It's an interesting, though flawed, approach to establishing a base-line of exactly how large the LGBT community is here in the US. The main flaw comes not from the Williams Institute but rather from the data collected by the census itself. It's not a count of the entire LGBT population but rather only counts married/partnered couples (and their kids); this omission of single households is a pretty glaring omission, IMO. But blame the Census Bureau for that. The second, which I know sounds picky, is that the information is presented in retardataire PDFs, which are clumsy to open and not given to cut-and-paste quotation. In 2011 there are much more user-friendly ways of employing interactive maps and charts. But that doesn't diminish the actual information like the point above. Gawker, as always, summarizes the data in a great fashion: As a resident of Wilton Manors*, I can concur that this couples-only bias gives a misleadingly-small impression of the gayness of my community, even if we're still number two in the nation. WM is hypergay ; in fact, W Hollywood has only 66.7 households per 1000, so we're about twice as gay (per capita) as that notorious hotspot. *NB: The Wikipedia page linked has not been updated in quite a while. Not only have these new statistics not been included, but the picture of City Hall shows the former building. The current building is much more impressive. So where does your state/community come out (yucky pun intended)?
