More Census Snapshots

Post to Twitter

Following up on my earlier posts (herehereherehereherehere, and here), the Williams Institute has released snapshot reports from the 2010 census this week for Arkansas, Iowa, Louisiana, Maryland, New Jersey, and Texas.

According to the census, there are 7,004 same-sex couples in Arkansas (or 6.11 per 1,000 households). Sixty-five percent are female and 35% are male, and 27% of these same-sex couples are raising children.

In Iowa, there are 6,540 same-sex couples (or 5.35 per 1,000 households). Seventy-one percent are female and 29% are male, and 21% are raising children.

In Louisiana, there are 12,153 same-sex couples (or 7.03 per 1,000 households). Sixty-four percent are female and 36% are male, and 26% are raising children.

In Maryland, there are 16,987 same-sex couples (or 7.88 per 1,000 households). Sixty-five percent are female and 35% are male, and 24% are raising children.

In New Jersey, there are 24,112 same-sex couples (or 7.5 per 1,000 households). Sixty-one percent are female and 39% are male, and 24% are raising children.

In Texas, there are 67,413 same-sex couples (or 7.56 per 1,000 households). Sixty-one percent are female and 39% are male, and only 19% 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.
