NZ Census dispels the 10% homosexual myth

"Census results … The new figures also suggest that same-sex couples are less likely to nest than their heterosexual counterparts, with homosexual couples making up just under 1% of all couples in New Zealand in 2006 … The numbers of gay men living together rose slightly from the 2001 Census to reach 0.3% in 2006, while the number of lesbian women cohabiting made up 0.4% of all couples living together … Numerically this means that there were 3516 female couples and 2655 male couples living together in 2006, compared with 867,696 couples of the opposite sex … Although the numbers only take into account same-sex couples who live together, they are the most accurate statistics indicating the number of gay people in New Zealand."

Do the numbers: (3,516+2,655)/(3,516+2,655+867,696)*100%=0.71%

    And “I think your all” needs to learn some basic grammar.

    So you’re saying that you now have to be in a relationship to be gay???

    Your maths was a waste of time!

    No, and some people in “gay” relationships are not “gay” either. It is rather a lifestyle choice.
