This article shared 2901 times since Wed Mar 9, 2005
On the heels of the re-release of a groundbreaking analysis of Black same-sex households, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force has published the results of a study of Hispanic and Latino gay and lesbian households in the Sunshine State. Hispanic and Latino Same-Sex Households in Florida: a Report from the 2000 Census is the first study to examine the demographics captured by the 2000 U.S. Census about Hispanic/Latino same-sex households.
The analysis shows, among other things, that Hispanic/Latino same-sex households in Florida earn less, are less likely to be homeowners, and are 13 times more likely to include a partner who is foreign born and not a U.S. citizen than white non-Hispanic/ Latino same-sex households.
Other findings include the news that Florida Hispanic/Latino same-sex couples are raising non-biological children at almost the same rate ( 3 percent ) as Hispanic/Latino married opposite-sex couples ( 4 percent ) . Also, Hispanic/Latino gay and lesbian couples are almost as likely as their opposite-sex counterparts to report living in the same residence as five years earlier ( 38 percent vs. 46 percent ) , a key indicator of relationship stability. Yet another interesting detail is that 76 percent of white non-Hispanic/Latino same-sex couples own their own homes, compared to 66 percent of Hispanic/Latino female same-sex couples, and just 54 percent of Hispanic/Latino male same-sex couples.
The study analyzes census information regarding such parameters as age, immigration status, language, income, employment, military service, and home ownership for Hispanic/Latino same-sex households.
The full study is available at www.thetaskforce.org/latinostudy.
