I have been looking for any general datasets about LGBT Americans. The type of file I look for are either CSV or TSV. Although my inquiry will hopefully yield some spatial indices at the county or state level, because of the apparent lack of initial success in searching I am hoping for data of some depth of any sort. Any suggestions or help is greatly appreciated.

There is not a lot of good nation-wide data on LGBT topics. Here are a few I was able to find for you. Some of them are already in CSV/TSV and/or Excel format (and therefore trivial to convert to CSV) while some are PDF reports with tables embedded (which, given some effort, could be converted to CSV/TSV tables):

  • Thank you for answering such a general question. I am using data to create a portfolio and I didn't need anything specific. The github link is especially nice because it has a spatial dimension. Jan 30, 2016 at 17:17
  • If you were to go further as far as process in trying to find more data, especially spatial data, where would you start? Jan 30, 2016 at 17:20
  • @StephenEngley - I would search more on lgbtdata.com and look at HRC's data and try to get more from them. Jan 30, 2016 at 19:49
