The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has partnered in what’s considered the country’s largest gay health survey.

An introduction to the survey at http://www.sexisthequestion.org says, “We all know how to keep ourselves safe. Yet, guys continue to test positive. We need your help to figure out why.”

The confidential survey, led by the CDC behavioral and clinical research branch in Atlanta and researchers Craig Sineath, Patrick Sullivan and Travis Sanchez at Emory University, offers immediate feedback on answers.

The data, according to the researchers, will be used by the CDC and state and local health departments to better understand patterns of behavior and develop prevention resources.

In other survey news, the researchers involved with the Caribbean Men’s Internet Survey are reporting that one in four men in the Caribbean identifies as bisexual.

More than 2,500 men in 33 regions were surveyed for the study.

“We have a fair population in the Caribbean that identify as bisexual. Across the entire sample … about 20 to 23 percent say they are bisexual,” researcher Ernest Massiah told the Antigua Observer.

He said another 15 percent of the male population refuses a sexual identity label.
