The correlation between having money and being gay
Read an interesting article from the Huffingtonpost about how gay Americans are financially more secure than the average American.
According to the survey of more than 1,000 gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people by Prudential, a financial services company, the average LGBTQ household earns $61,500 annually, which is more than $10,000 higher than the average national household income. Only 7% of respondents were unemployed, compared to the 7.9% US national average. But we all know it’s not about how much people make, it’s about how much they can save. Well gay households save on average $6,000 more than the national average. Not only that, but they also have $4,000 less in debt. Pretty impressive. But I guess it makes sense to save more money if you make more money. No wonder why so many gay celebrities are rich and awesome.
Why do gay people tend to earn more money and are better at managing their debt than the national average? I don’t really know. Of course this is only one study and results may vary by different States. Now I’m interested to see a survey like this for Canadians. 😀 I wonder if the findings will be similar or different. Have a nice weekend folks.
