1.5% of Brits gay or bi
#1
Ahead of next year's census, if it's still going ahead, we've just had what amounts to one of the largest surveys in the UK. Extrapolating the figures the stat-folk have come up with a figure that shows that just 1.5% of the population identify as gay or bi. This is considerably less than the 6% figure used in planning local government services a few years ago. I'm rarer than I thought. I hope I am not an endangered species. Even more depressingly 79% of the population seem to admit to a religious affiliation. So much for the secular wasteland caricatured during the pope's recent visit. We've obviously got a long way to go Wink

4% Didn't know, described themselves as other or refused to answer. This was an interview survey, I generally don't believe what people say to a woman with a clipboard.

Also Marshy, as an older gay man according to the survey you are a rarity, indeed.

Just another survey, how many answered with the truth? Since more people would be Bi then gay, the figures seem the wrong way round for a start. How was the survey undertaken, postal, phone or direct interview, and each one would have given a different result.

That is quite an interesting statistic. I wonder which country has the most gay/bi sexual people.
