San Francisco, Calif., and Washington, D.C., ranked No. 1 and No. 2 on a newly published Census Bureau table that lists eighteen U.S. “selected cities” by the percentage of households living there in 2017 that were headed by same-sex couples.

“The Census Bureau collects data on same-sex couple households by asking how each person in the household is related to the householder (who owns or rents the home),” says the bureau. “Households are identified as same-sex couple households if a spouse or unmarried partner is the same sex as the householder.”

Nationwide, only 0.8 percent of American households in 2017 were determined by the Census Bureau to be “same-sex households.”

In San Francisco, which ranked No. 1 in the Census Bureau table, 3.0 percent of households were same-sex households in 2017.

Thus, 97 percent of the households in San Francisco were not same-sex households.

Washington, D.C. came in a close second, with 2.9 percent of its households deemed to be same-sex households.

In Los Angeles, Dallas and New York, which tied for 13th place in Census Bureau table, only 1.1 percent of households were same-sex households.

Thus, 98.9 percent of the households in Los Angeles and New York were not same-sex households.
