  • Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) Population

    Individuals who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer (LGBTQ) are diverse and include people of all demographic backgrounds. Members of the LGBTQ community are at increased risk for a number of poor health outcomes compared to heterosexual and cisgender people as a result of social and structural inequities.3

    The interactive Tableau dashboards below help to visualize demographic, health and well-being, and healthcare access data disaggregated by sexual orientation and gender identity. Data for the adult population comes from the California Health Interview Survey (CHIS), 2016-2020, and data for the youth population is from the Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (YRBSS), 2015-2019. The dashboard also introduces the terminology used to describe sexual orientation and gender identity and emphasizes the importance of identifying and addressing health inequities among the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) population.
