More women identify as bisexual
In a National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) conducted in 2013, 68% of respondents who identified as bisexual were women, while 32% were men. This finding corresponds with the results of other population-based surveys, which consistently find that LGB women are more likely to identify as bisexual, while a majority of LGB men identify as gay.
