Supplementary notes

The original question was: "Do you, personally, identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender?"

The source states: "The number of interviews conducted in each state between June and December is large enough to allow for reasonable estimates of each state's LGBT population. Only eight states had less than 1,000 completed interviews, including the lowest sample size of 613 in Alaska. Gallup also asked the LGBT question of 493 District of Columbia residents. The number of completed interviews conducted in each state is presented in the accompanying table [at the source]."
