There are well-documented disparities in health by both sexual orientation and rurality; however, very little research looks at the intersection of the two, and even less research examines differences in rates of specific health conditions. In this policy brief, we look at rates of individual chronic conditions, as well as differences in the number of chronic conditions by sexual orientation and rural-urban location.
