Media Advisory — Census Bureau to Release 2010 Census Statistics on Same-Sex Households
Contact: Public Information Office
The U.S. Census Bureau will hold an audio and Web news conference to release new estimates of same-sex couple households from the 2010 Census. These estimates include not only new statistics on the number of married same-sex couples but also a set of estimates developed to account for data capture errors that affected the number of same-sex married and unmarried partners. Estimates from the 2010 American Community Survey and a written brief will be released simultaneously.
The event will consist of an audio conference and online presentation. Reporters will be able to ask questions once the presentation is complete. We suggest reporters log in and call in early.
