Gays and bisexuals were represented in record numbers in a recently conducted survey, reports the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. According to U.S. government data released on Tuesday, 2.3 percent of American adults identify as either gay or bisexual and report having anxiety and more self-destructive habits than their straight peers.
The CDC survey, titled Sexual Orientation and Health Among U.S. Adults: National Health Interview Survey, 2013, included information from over 34,500 Americans, age 18 and up, with 1.6 reporting that they were bisexual and 0.7 percent reporting that they were bisexual. Results showed 96.6 percent as straight and 1.1 percent as either “something else,” unsure, or giving no response at all.
