Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

Following up on my earlier posts (hereherehere, and here), the Williams Institute has released snapshot reports from the 2010 census this week for Georgia, Maine, New Hampshire, Puerto Rico, Kentucky, and Virginia.

According to the census, there are 29,844 same-sex couples in Georgia (or 8.3 per 1,000 households). Fifty-seven percent are female and 43% are male, and 25% of these same-sex couples are raising children.

In Maine, there are 5,405 same-sex couples (or 9.7 per 1,000 households). Sixty-six percent are female and 34% are male, and only 17% are raising children.

In New Hampshire, there are 4,635 same-sex couples (or 8.9 per 1,000 households). Sixty-eight percent are female and 32% are male, and 19% are raising children.

In Puerto Rico, there are 6,614 same-sex couples (or 4.8 per 1,000 households). Seventy percent are female and 30% are male, and 28% are raising children.

In Kentucky, there are 11,572 same-sex couples (or 6.7 per 1,000 households). Sixty-four percent are female and 36% are male, and 24% are raising children.

In Virginia, there are 20,540 same-sex couples (or 6.7 per 1,000 households). Sixty-one percent are female and 39% 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 still the city with the highest number of same-sex couples per 1,000 households.
