DC has highest percentage, Harrisburg 4th


The New York Times reports: When the District of Columbia is compared with the 50 states, it has the highest percentage of adults who identify as LGBT, according to Gallup. At 10%, that is double the percentage in the state that ranks No. 2, Hawaii, and nearly triple the overall national average of 3.5%. The numbers are based on Census Bureau figures. The Census Bureau looked at where the highest percentage of same-sex couple households were and also found that the District of Columbia ranked far higher than the 50 states, with 4 percent. The national average is just under 1 percent.

Harrisburg has the fourth highest concentration of same-sex households among cities and boroughs in the state, according to 2010 US Census figures released by UCLA’s William’s Institute. Three hundred and eighteen households reported themselves as same-sex couples which accounts for 15.45 of every 1,000 couples in the capital city. According to the institute's 2010 Census analysis, 22,336 same-sex couples are living in Pennsylvania, representing 4.5 same-sex couples per 1,000 households.
