 New York Times, January 18, 2011

UCLA demographers analyzing 2010 Census Bureau data have found that same-sex couples raising children are more common in the South than in any other region in the United States. Black or Latino gay couples are twice as likely as whites to raise children, according to the research. One in every three lesbians is a parent, while one in every five gay men are raising children. In 2009, the Census Bureau estimated that there were 581,000 same-sex couples in the United States. [Link]
