-- From "D.C. tops in gay-male households" by Cheryl Wetzstein, The Washington Times 11/1/10
The District came in No. 1 in the nation, with 31 percent of the city's unmarried couples identifying themselves as same-sex. This high representation was overwhelmingly due to the men — gay male households make up 26 percent of all unmarried households, compared with 4 percent that were led by lesbians.
However, Massachusetts was the top choice of lesbian couples, who represented nearly 8 percent of the state's unmarried couples. Gay males were about 6 percent of the Bay State's unmarried households.
Overall, there were 581,300 gay-couple-headed households in the United States in 2009, the National Center for Marriage & Family Research (NCMFR) said in this month's Family Profiles report, citing data from the 2009 American Community Survey (ACS).
The NCMFR's Family Profiles are summaries of the latest statistics on a variety of family issues. The center was established in 2007 at Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio, and receives support from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
