Nebraska gay households: 2010 Census snapshots compiled by UCLA's Williams Institute

2010 US Census figures via the Williams Institute
Geez, sometimes we at AKSARBENT don't have to look further for post fodder than to check the damn news feed reader at the right side of our own blog!
     Pam's House Blend did a post on the latest batch of 2010 Census snapshots of gay households compiled by UCLA's Williams Institute and Nebraska is on the list.
     Since the Williams Institute apparently doesn't have enough money to label the counties on its maps, AKSARBENT has included a Nebraska map with identified counties. You'll have to compare.
     The authors of these reports are Gary J. Gates, PhD, the Williams Distinguished Scholar at the Williams Institute, UCLA School of Law and Abigail M. Cooke, a PhD candidate in the Department of Geography at UCLA, affiliated with the California Center for Population Research.
     71% of same-sex couples in Nebraska tracked by the 2010 Census are female, 29% are male. Statewide, 22% of gay couples are raising kids.
     Interestingly, Kearney has a greater percentage of same sex households than either Bellevue or Grand Island. In fact, it's #3 in the state, behind Omaha and Lincoln.
