Illinois Census Snapshot: 2010
The Williams Institute Census 2010 Snapshots replace similar reports released in the summer of 2011 that relied on tabulations of same-sex couples that the Census Bureau has since revised. These analyses use preferred estimates of same-sex couples released by the Census Bureau that are considered to be more accurate than the tabulations released in the summer of 2011 (found in the Census 2010 SF-1 data, Table PCT15). Each Snapshot provides separate information about same-sex couples who identified as spouses and unmarried partners. Analyses focus on geographic distribution, sex of partners, and child-rearing.
