  • Asexual
  • Prefer not to say.

Sexual orientation and US salaries

There is a difference of about 11% between Straight-only responses and all others combined, but caution should be taken to consider the sample size. As a result, we’re not drawing further conclusions at this time, but it’s an area we’d like to explore in the future with additional data points.
