We all learn things from the census, but there have never been any questions relating to non-monogamy. So what are poly people like in relation to everyone else? In, you know, a census-y way?
Loving More, a polyamory focused non-profit in the United States, did one of the most extensive surveys of polyamorous people to date. And it did it in a census-y way, asking census style questions to try to come up with real data to compare the poly community with the general population.
Now, the sample size was small and self-selected (people who were self-identified as polyamorous volunteered to participate in the survey), so your university statistics professor might not have a lot of time for this data. But we at London Polyamory do, because it’s interesting and might shed some light on the community here and abroad.
So we’re staging a competition. Poly people vs. The United State General Population: Let the games begin.
Ding ding. And the first round goes to poly people.
For the second round, there are no winners.
Here’s some advice for if you’re facing discrimination in the workplace.
But for the third round, poly people are back on top.
