Census and Same-Sex Couples

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

The Williams Institute has begun releasing snapshot reports from the 2010 census and will continue doing so each week throughout the summer. This week: Hawaii and Alabama.

According to the census, there are 4,248 same-sex couples in Hawaii (or 9.33 per 1,000 households). Fifty-three percent are female and 47% are male, and only 23% of these same-sex couples are raising children.

In Alabama, there are 11,259 same-sex couples, but only 5.98 per 1,000 households. Sixty percent are female and 40% are male, and 27% are raising children.

For those interested, the snapshots also include the top counties and cities within these states ranked by number of same-sex couples per 1,000 households (including only those with more than 50 same-sex couples).
