Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

Following up on my earlier posts (hereherehereherehere, and here), the Williams Institute has released snapshot reports from the 2010 census this week for Illinois, Indiana, Nevada, Oregon, South Dakota, and Washington.

According to the census, there are 32,469 same-sex couples in Illinois (or 6.7 per 1,000 households). Fifty-eight percent are female and 42% are male, and 21% of these same-sex couples are raising children.

In Indiana, there are 16,428 same-sex couples (or 6.6 per 1,000 households). Sixty-seven percent are female and 33% are male, and 23% are raising children.

In Nevada, there are 9,321 same-sex couples (or 9.3 per 1,000 households). Fifty-four percent are female and 46% are male, and 22% are raising children.

In Oregon, there are 14,979 same-sex couples (or 9.9 per 1,000 households). Sixty-five percent are female and 35% are male, and 29% are raising children.

In South Dakota, there are 1,390 same-sex couples (or 4.3 per 1,000 households). Seventy-two percent are female and 28% are male, and 26% are raising children.

In Washington, there are 24,278 same-sex couples (or 9.3 per 1,000 households). Sixty percent are female and 40% 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.
