If you are talking about statistics related to the number of gay people, most estimates come within 3% to 8% of the population.

In statistics, the population distribution of some variable within a population of some units is the set of values that the variable can take and how frequntly it takes that value. Population need not have anything to do with people. It is simply a way of referring to the totality of the things that you are studying. For example, if you were studying the number of apples on each tree in an apple orchard, your population would be the apple trees in the orchard, the variable would be the number of apples per tree and the population distribution would be the number of trees that had 0 apples, the number that had 1 apple, 2 apples and so on. To make that information more manageable you may collapse the distribution to 0 apples, 1 to 25 apples, 26 to 50 apples and so on.

Statistics often requires one to make estimates of some measure (variable) about a set of units. The total number of such units is the population size. Note that population, in this context, need not refer to people. If the study is about household expenditure on food (in some area), then the population is all households and the population size is the number of households (in that area). If the study is about diversity of insects in a field, the population may be all 1-metre squares in the field, and the size of the population will be the number of such plots - which will equal the area of the field.

According to Occasional Paper No. 10: Statistics for Inhabited Islands, the population of Islay was 3457 in 2001. This number has probably changed since then.

In statistics, it is called the 'population'. There are two types of populations: finite and infinite. A finite population can simply be counted such as the number of students in a class. An infinite population, on the other hand, cannot be counted or is very difficult to count such as the residents in a city. Statistics is all about infinite populations because we need to make conclusions about the entire population based on observations of a small sample of that population.

Although the Massachusetts Department of Health and Human Services, Bureau of Health Information, Statistics, Research and Evaluation maintains a website where they present health statistics, they do not provide to the public information concerning the number of marriages in Massachusetts. It seems, therefore, that this information is not publicly available.

Geographers study a range of population statistics, including the total number of people in a given area, population density, birth and death rates, migration patterns, age structure, gender distribution, and population growth or decline over time. They also analyze factors such as urbanization, fertility rates, life expectancy, and social and economic implications of population dynamics.
