Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

Following up on my earlier posts (here, here, and here), the Williams Institute has released snapshot reports from the 2010 census this week for New York, Arizona, Minnesota, Montana, Oklahoma, and Vermont.

According to the census, there are 65,303 same-sex couples in New York (or 8.9 per 1,000 households). Fifty-two percent are female and 48% are male, and 20% of these same-sex couples are raising children.

In Arizona, there are 20,948 same-sex couples (or 8.8 per 1,000 households). Fifty-nine percent are female and 41% are male, and 22% are raising children.

In Minnesota, there are 13,718 same-sex couples (or 6.6 per 1,000 households). Sixty-four percent are female and 36% are male, and only 17% are raising children.

In Montana, there are 2,295 same-sex couples (or 5.6 per 1,000 households). Seventy-two percent are female and 28% are male, and 26% are raising children.

In Oklahoma, there are 9,802 same-sex couples (or 6.7 per 1,000 households). Sixty-five percent are female and 35% are male, and 26% are raising children.

In Vermont, there are 2,798 same-sex couples (or 10.9 per 1,000 households). Sixty-nine percent are female and 31% are male, and 20% are raising children.

Again, information regarding the top counties and cities is also available.

In the snapshots released to date, Vermont is the state, San Francisco is the county, and Palm Springs is the city with the highest number of same-sex couples per 1,000 households.
