Research into effects of Polyamory on American demographics, politics or economy?
 
I'm a journalist interested in how the increasing popularity of polyamory may transform American demographics (do polyamorists tend on average to have more, or fewer kids than traditional couples?), politics (could it render the 'sanctity of marriage' debate irrelevant?) or even economics (say, taxes collected based on numbers who file jointly, or child (dependent) costs). Does anyone know of any research that's been published, or is currently being done, in any of these areas?
Thanks much,

Jacob

There has been very little study of polyamory in any arena. I don't know of any source for information on any of that.

Hell, we can't even get solid research on how many folks engage in poly.
