The Williams Institute at UCLA School of Law — the preeminent resource for independent research and scholarship on sexual orientation and gender identity issues in the United States — has just released its State Resource Map, which promises to provide easy access to the latest state-specific LGBT research. Reports contain the following information:

  • estimates of the LGBT population
  • maps showing where same-sex couples live by county
  • the number and percent of same-sex couples raising children
  • race, ethnicity, income, and other demographic information
  • evidence documenting discrimination against LGBT employees
  • the impact of voter identification laws on transgender voters for states with the most restrictive laws
  • the impact of extending the rights and obligations of marriage to same-sex couples on the state budget and economy (for selected states)
