More Census Snapshots

Post to Twitter

Following up on my earlier posts (herehereherehere, and here), the Williams Institute has released snapshot reports from the 2010 census this week for Idaho, Missouri, Ohio, Utah, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.

According to the census, there are 3,245 same-sex couples in Idaho (or 5.6 per 1,000 households). Seventy-two percent are female and 28% are male, and 24% of these same-sex couples are raising children.

In Missouri, there are 15,242 same-sex couples (or 6.4 per 1,000 households). Sixty-three percent are female and 37% are male, and 21% are raising children.

In Ohio, there are 28,602 same-sex couples (or 6.2 per 1,000 households). Sixty-four percent are female and 36% are male, and 22% are raising children.

In Utah, there are 5,814 same-sex couples (or 6.6 per 1,000 households). Sixty-six percent are female and 34% are male, and 24% are raising children.

In West Virginia, there are 5,240 same-sex couples (or 6.9 per 1,000 households). Sixty-four percent are female and 36% are male, and 24% are raising children.

In Wisconsin, there are 13,630 same-sex couples (or 6 per 1,000 households). Sixty-six percent are female and 34% are male, and only 18% 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.
