Relationship status of straight and queer individuals Japan 2019

In a survey conducted in November and December 2019, approximately 49 percent of heterosexual respondents stated to be married. Among LGBT individuals, transgender respondents were most likely to be married at around 45 percent.
The acronym LGBT stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender and has been used since the 1990s. It is an umbrella term for individuals identifying as non-heterosexual or non-cisgender, with the latter meaning that the individual's gender identity does not match their sex assigned at birth.

Supplementary notes

Original question: "What kind of relationship do you have with your spouse or partner?"

The source does not indicate whether the LGBT individuals stating to be married are in same-sex relationships or not. As same-sex marriage is not legally recognized in Japan as of October 2020, married LGBT individuals might either be married to a spouse of the opposite sex or might be referring to a same-sex marriage conducted outside of Japan.
