Where Is D.C.'s Transgender Data? - The Sexist - Washington City Paper
In June, the Mayor’s Office of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Affairs Affairs released the District’s first report on the health of gay, lesbian, and bisexual residents [ PDF ]. At the report’s conclusion, it admits to several limitations. Including this one: “there were no questions asked about transgender residents.” Why did the report omit the T in GLBT? “The short answer is that we didn’t have any data to report,” says Christopher Dyer , Director for the Mayor’s Office of GLBT affairs. “[Trans-specific health] is a brand new field of research at the government level.” The ... market research, surveys and trends

According to Washoe County School District 2009 Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) results, after several years of decline, both middle and high school students reporting lifetime use of alcohol increased.  The same is true for the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

The map shows the prevalence of smoking among adults in the United States as of 2008 and the cigarette excise-tax rates across the United States as of July 1, 2010.

Boys had generally exaggurated their experience (although a few regular drug-takers strongly ...
