A Centers for Disease Control ( CDC ) report on sexual behavior, attraction and identity among adults in the United States reveals that men and women younger than 45 are more likely to identify as bisexual today than they were earlier this decade.

More than 9,000 adults ages 18 to 44 were interviewed for the CDC's 2011-2013 National Survey of Family Growth ( NSFG ). Approximately 7 percent of women and 4 percent of men in that age group describe themselves as lesbian, gay or bisexual, compared to 5 percent of women and 3 percent of men in the 2006-2008 survey.

The report is at i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2016/images/01/06/nhsr88.pdf .
