A Few Fun Demographic Facts About Tomato Nation
Hey, remember that survey I asked you to take? I thought you'd like to see some of the results.
51% of you are single.
83% of you live in the U.S. at the moment; 80% of you live in a city (more than 50,000 people in it).
65% of you have a pet of some sort. Despite inadvertent efforts on the part of my prose to discourage you, at least 36% of you have chosen to share your lives with felines.
18% of you either give or receive education; 8% work in the legal industry; 3% are job-hunting (good luck!).
44% of you watch at least 10 hours of TV a week.
95% buy books, music, and movies online; 45% by housewares online; 68% buy clothes online.
71% of you own or lease a car as your primary mode of transport. 1% of you get around by a non-car, non-bike, non-transit, non-walking means. (Skates? Neat.)
67% of you work out at least once a week.
73% of you like to cook; 26% like to knit; 10% like to make jewelry; 32% like to make trouble.
Almost all of you like to read — 99% read books, 73% read magazines, 10% read literary quarterlies, 63% use social media — except that one respondent who checked off "doesn't like to read." Hee.
Welcome, 2% of readers who've been coming for less than a year! Hope you stick around. 88% of respondents have read TN for more than 4 years; almost 20% have read TN for more than 10 years.
26% of you comment at least occasionally on TN content. One respondent comments on all entries, which even I don't do. Heh.
And now, for the important stuff…33% of you hate raisins, and given the choice of dining with Freddie Mercury, George Clooney, President Obama, or your grandfathers (or possibly my grandfather…seems like people didn't know to read the question in that case, but I'm told Clif Sr. was a nice guy, so you're welcome to his company as far as I'm concerned), 31% of you would have dinner with Obama, just edging the grandpas (30%). 22% went with Clooney;17% went with Freddie; many many of you berated me for forcing you to choose between these options.
