DENVER (AP) - The U.S. Census Bureau says the number of same-sex households in Colorado jumped by about 60 percent in the past decade. Now, more than one in five gay couples in the state are raising children.
The data released Thursday puts Colorado in line with other states as same-sex households increase.
Colorado also followed national trends showing more households involving unmarried couples and declining home ownership rates for Latinos, who were hit hard by the housing crash.
The 2010 census was the first to ask same-sex households about children.
