Also, Kinsey wasn't measuring "LGBT" with his 10% number, he was measuring men with a recent history of having gay sex - so generalizing the number to include women and the transgendered doesn't really make sense either.

In the USA, the 2012 census produced estimates for the 50 states varying from 1.7% to 5.1%.
