Census count to include same-sex households

For the first time, the Census Bureau plans to collect same-sex household data in its once-per-decade count.

On Thursday, federal census officials, LGBT leaders, and supervisors Bevan Dufty and David Campos will hold a roundtable to discuss laying the groundwork for an accurate count.

“The decennial census is a snapshot of our nation. The picture is not complete without accounting for millions of gay and lesbian households,” said Lynn Sorgenfrei, assistant regional census manager.

The Census Bureau will mail the 10-question Census Form to all households in mid-March. April 1, 2010 is Census Day. 

The meeting, which is open to the public, will be held on Thursday at 12:30 p.m. at the San Francisco LGBT Community Center, 1800 Market St.
