Call for Papers: Population Review’s Special Collection on Demography of Sexuality

Population Review, published since 1957, is excited to invite submissions for

high-quality quantitative research papers on the broad theme of the

Demography of Sexuality. Papers may include a variety of topics focused on the

quantitative examination of the LGBTQ population, including but not limited to

issues concerning measurement, prevalence, segregation, migration, families,

labor market, and health.

This special collection is guest edited by Prof. Amanda Baumle, the editor of

International Handbook on the Demography of Sexuality (2013) and author of

the following books: Legalizing LGBT Families: How the Law Shapes Parenthood

(2015); Same-Sex Partners: The Social Demography of Sexual Orientation

(2009); and Sex Discrimination and Law Firm Culture on the Internet:

Lawyers at the ‘Information Age Water Cooler’ (2009). In addition, Dr. Baumle

has published a dozen articles on sexuality in journals including Journal of

Marriage and Family, Social Science Research, Social Forces, and Social Science


This is an open call through 2016. Papers will be published in the order they
