I would like to know numbers of LGBT people in my local area so we can do service planning, where do I get those?

Unfortunately we do not have data on exact numbers of this population as population based surveys (including the census) do not ask questions on sexuality or allow people to record transgender status. This is beginning to change but at the moment we have to use some of the methods outlined below to make a judgement on how many LGBT people we need to consider.
