    NYT: The San Francisco and Portland, Ore., metropolitan areas have the greatest percentage of residents who are gay, as we wrote last week. But those regions do not have the largest gay populations in terms of sheer size. That distinction instead goes to New York and Los Angeles.

    Those two metro areas are so large — the only two in the country with more than 10 million residents — that they lead the way on many population counts, including the number of people who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender. About 756,000 people in the New York region fall into that category, according to an analysis of survey data by Gallup, and about 590,000 people in the Los Angeles region do.

    Are you aware that there are other publications besides The New York Times? Every one of your posts is a copy and paste job of a New York Times article!
    Since Woodsmen lives in the Seattle-Tacoma Metro Area, why doesn't he pick articles out of the Seattle paper that could be of interest to us rather than out of a paper that is not only out of town but clearly across the country from himicon_question.gif

    Just an article emphasizing what we already know. Of course it will have more gay populations as those two are bigger cities. The study didn't account for the removal/make constant the size of the city (i.e. standardising this variable) to make comparison effective.

    This is like saying in a population sample size, you can find longer legs in taller people icon_rolleyes.gif.
