    Again, the survey compared gay households with all households. Statistics allows us to extrapolate that into gay singles v all singles.

    No, it only compared coupled households.

    Nationwide, 594,000
    same-sex unmarried-partner households
    represented 1 percent of all
    coupled households.
    http://www.census.gov/prod/2003pubs/censr-5.pdf

    Page three, middle column, second paragraph.

    CC already pointed out they didn't ask the sexuality of single households.

    Please stop dancing.

    Which is exactly what I stated previously. Again, simple statistics allows us to extrapolate this data into the remainder of society. *shrug*

    No, you can't assume anything.

    You need to let the field of statistics know that they can't practice anymore.
    ...statisticians have developed methods based on a simple model: Assume that an infinitely large population of values exists and that your data (your 'sample') was randomly selected from this population. Analyze your sample and use the rules of probability to make inferences about the overall population.

    Statistics can be manipulated without proper methodology.

    Are you suggesting that the US Census wasn't objective?

    No, I am suggesting that you aren't objective. The Census bureau didn't make the assumption that you want to.

    The Census Bureau simply provides the data. Again, its simple statistics.

    So what percent gay do you think the US is?
