Gallup's latest update on lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender identification finds 5.6% of U.S. adults identifying as LGBT, according to the organization.
The current estimate is up from 4.5% in Gallup's previous update based on 2017 data.
Currently, 86.7% of Americans say they are heterosexual or straight, and 7.6% do not answer the question about their sexual orientation. Gallup's 2012-2017 data had roughly 5% "no opinion" responses.
The identity question asked in 2020 offers a greater level of detail than the question asked in previous years.
