Chip stated in the comments to my previous post that the higher rates of assault on bisexuals may be due to their greater promiscuity/number of partners. The variable PARTNERS in the GSS measures that, so I entered it as a control. Unfortunately, rather than simply giving me a simple one-shot dealie like Bryan Caplan’s “Enlightened Public“, I just got separate results for each number of partners and I don’t feel like reproducing it. Instead I’ll just give number of partners by gender of partners over 5 years (that second variable is SEXSEX5) and rates of assault (LAW2 again) by number of partners. All results are filtered for women (SEX(2)).

I’m having problems simply copy-pasting html again, and some things wouldn’t fit. So I eliminated a big waste of space declaring the PARTNERS row variable in the first colored table and split the second colored table up into two tables. The “ROW TOTAL” there is for all cases, not just 4 or more. The graph pictures appear clipped, but if you click on them you can see them full size. I’m currently unsure how to get the Variables table to fully display the MD and DATASET columns. Eliminating the Role column didn’t help, as it seems convinced I have more width available than WordPress is giving me and expands the Label column accordingly.
