Producing population estimates for the lesbian, gay and bisexual community

flag-1184117_1280

Public Health England has published Producing modelled estimates of the size of the lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) population of England.

The report has three key objectives:

  1. To critically review existing research, surveys and measurement tools to identify the strengths and weaknesses in using them to estimate the size of the LGB population.
  2. To set out and justify the proposed methodology for accurately and robustly estimating the size of the LGB population.
  3. To produce robust and reliable estimates for the LGB population that can be broken down by socio-demographic and geographic variables.

The report establishes a new estimate of the size of the lesbian, gay and bisexual population of England, providing a population denominator for use in estimating health outcomes by sexual orientation.
