Looking at Race & Sexual Preference

In an effort to understand the media concentration on LGBT issues and racial problems, as well as seemingly constant transgender issues, I did a bit of separating the chaff from wheat on the web. I used only US Government websites to avoid misapplied numerical information (I know, many would say that is why I should avoid governmental websites) First, as to my primary inquiry, due to media exposure, I wanted to know how common transgender issues are.

If one looks at all “transgendered” US citizens, including those confused or unsure as to their gender identity, we have 3/10 of 1% or approximately one in about 300 people has this difficulty.

As to sexual preferences then, we have about 3.5% in the LGBT category.

As to racial makeup:


White alone, percent, July 1, 2013, (V2013) (a)

Black or African American alone, percent, July 1, 2013, (V2013) (a)

American Indian and Alaska Native alone, percent, July 1, 2013, (V2013) (a)

Asian alone, percent, July 1, 2013, (V2013) (a)

Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander alone, percent, July 1, 2013, (V2013) (a)

Two or More Races, percent, July 1, 2013, (V2013)

Hispanic or Latino, percent, July 1, 2013, (V2013) (b)

That’s the most recent breakdown available.
