The figures from the Canadian Community Health Survey also indicate 0.7 percent of Canadians said they were bisexual, the Canadian Press news service reported. Advocates for homosexual rights cast doubt on the government's numbers. "What's clear is that there is under-reporting,'' Laurie Arron, director of advocacy for the "gay"-rights group Egale told the news service, claiming the number of homosexuals is somewhere between 5 and 10 percent. "I think you can definitely count on under-reporting, there's no question of that,'' said Michael Botnick, a professor of anthropology and sociology at the University of British Columbia. The survey found 1.3 percent of men considered themselves homosexual compared to 0.7 percent of women. Some 0.9 percent of women said they were bisexual, compared to 0.6 of men.
