What percentage of Americans own guns?

At the end of 2010 it was estimated that 45% of Americans own guns. If you took the percentage of guns to the number of Americans, the number rises to 90%.

What percentage of liberals own guns?

That is a real tough question to answer since most liberals won't admit to owning guns. There would have to be mandatory gun registration to identify who the gun owners are and the conservatives are deathly opposed to that. Liberals are in support of gun registration however they won't register their guns since gun registration should apply to other people. Although it can probably be stated that American "Progressives" tend to be more concerned about the negative effects of the 2nd Amendment, (i.e., high suicide rates and murder rates), being a "liberal" doesn't preclude someone from owning a gun or enjoying a sport like deer hunting. Answer The first thing that needs to be addressed in order to answer this question is who decides who is a "liberal"; then there needs to be a count of those identified. Once you have completed that part, you may the ascertain how many of those identified own guns and what that is as a percentage of the whole.

What percentage of Americans own stock?

Because there are many ways to "own" stock, this question can have many answers. For example, if you own a mutual fund in your company's retirement plan, you can be said to be the "owner" of the stocks that are in the mutual fund. That's in spite of the fact that you probably don't know what they are, and you have no voting control in either the stocks themselves or the mutual fund. The most commonly offered answer to this question uses this broad, and, arguably meaningless definition.. The Mutual Fund Industry group - Investment Company Institute - has a lot of data on this subject. Its 2002 study, http://www.ici.org/pdf/rpt_02_equity_owners.pdf showed that 49.5% (or 52.7 million) of US Households owned equities in some way shape or form in 2002. However, only 21 million (less than 20%) owned individual stocks outside an employee sponsored plan.. There is an important distinction here. When politicians talk about eliminating the capital gains tax, it is only these 21 million households who will pay lower taxes, because retirement investments are tax deferred while you hold them, and then taxed at regular income tax rates when you take the money out.. I haven't found a more up to date study, but than number was actually a little bit lower than it was in 1999 (peak of the Internet boom) so I doubt it's changed much.. There are also figures given for those who own equity mutual funds outside of an employee sponsored plan - 28.7 million households - as well as 35.9 million households who represent those who own either individual stocks or mutual funds or both. I'm not comfortable with either of those, as subsequent ICI studies suggest that the majority of the Mutual Fund investing households are holding their funds in IRAs or other tax deferred plans - so they, too, pay regular income tax, at the time of withdrawal, on capital gains and dividends.

What percentage of Americans are computer literate?

The term literate needs some definition first before this question can be answered. Surfing the net or checking and composing an email or playing a game does not constitute net literacy. An organized desktop with information resources of all types would be an indication that someone is net literate as would the ability to download and install software, keep their operating system and application software up to date and "back up". Sadly, very few meet this as a definition, given you accept this as a base definition. Having serviced hundreds of computers, both home users and small business, that percentage is less than 1%. The typical user is A) not aware they have problems until it misbehaves (typically because of no maintenance and / or no protection). Larger companies (with IT departments) are somewhat better but often constrain the end user and most users only use their computer to do what is necessary (ie....learn the basics of the job). Some seniors (with time available) do make good efforts at educating themselves and take advantage of the rich resources of the Internet. The younger generation tends to have better skills and to not be "savvy" is somewhat a societal negative. As baseline evidence of literacy most "Geek" inclined users (and that is not a good name) do not subscribe to cable, or movies and many do not own TV's. They instead watch anything they want (and save hundreds of dollars annually) at any time they want that has ever been produced. The Internet, undoubtedly the world's greatest invention, today provides facts, opinions and instructions for doing anything one wants. Few, take advantage of that. One of the negative (my opinion) things occurring are toys...tablets as an one example, social sites as another. One last comment....of the many desktops I have set up, with maintenance laid out left to right, sets of links to the best of the best on the Internet in many categories less than 10% actually do maintenance / keep their software up to date or explore the net. Most people appear to get frustrated (few actually take a tour when they buy a machine or bother to read help files) when any problem occurs. What does that translate to....fail safe toys...for social purposes and a limited set of other activities. Will this behavior change? Yes, over time but it will require a lot of focus. Peer pressure (among younger users) will drive this more than anything else I expect. The reality is to use a computer and the Internet requires one spend time learning.

What percentage of the American population is computer literate?

About 10% Computer literacy is not just learning to use a few specific applications (Word, Excel, Calculator), you basically need to get a feel of the computer, and have some basic knowledge about the processor and such. The reason so many people are computer illiterate is that they see no need for it. I personally think that those people are wrong because people try to cheat you out of money. If you go to Fry's and try to buy a laptop, the salesman will try to swindle you out of you money, saying that this computer has a better processor and such. If you learn some things about computers you won't have this problem because you have idea of what you are actually buying, not something that you do your work with all the time. Computer literate people make the computer follow your lead; not the other way around. I hope this helps
