Journal of Official Statistics
Special Issue on Measuring LGBT populations
Special Issue Guest Editors
Stephanie Steinmetz, Assistant Professor of Sociology, University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands
Mirjam Fischer, Doctoral researcher in Sociology, University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands
Nancy Bates, Senior Researcher for Survey Methodology, US Census Bureau, USA
In recent years, much progress has been made in the US, Europe and beyond with regard to legislation that is supportive and protective of LGBTs (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans persons). While these achievements are laudable, it is important to keep evaluating to what extent structural obstacles to equality remain. Compared to research on other minority groups, sexual minorities have been studied quantitatively much less in the social sciences. Yet, scholars have continuously made efforts to overcome the methodological challenges associated with studying this population quantitatively. This is an important development which should be encouraged and continued.
The aim of the special issue is to showcase research around the challenges, successes, and best practices when collecting data on sexual minorities. We also welcome articles estimating the size of the LGBT population (using a variety of methodologies) and policy papers.
Deadline for submission is March 31, 2018.
