Gay and Lesbian Families in the United States

Same-Sex Unmarried Partner Households
August 22, 2001

Abstract

The 2000 U.S. Census Bureau figures for same-sex unmarried partner households provide researchers and policy makers with a wealth of information about a previously unrecognized constituency. These numbers provide policy makers at every level of government compelling arguments for why they need to take care of the policy needs of gay and lesbian families as they live in nearly every corner of every county in America.
