Population had Readings on population book hanging on for dear life until the very last word. Definitely one of those books that you hate to put down.

Readings in population. New York, Macmillan [] (OCoLC) Material Type: Internet resource. Ehrlich, told me recently that the book’s main contribution was to make population control “acceptable” as “a topic to debate.” But the book did far more than that.

According to the research, Americans read a mean average of 12 books per year, and the typical (median) American has read four books in the past 12 months.

And this has largely been the case since. About 77 percent of American women read a book incompared with 67 percent of American guys. Also, the average woman read 14 books in a month span, while the average man read only 9.

Across both genders, readership also went up with education and income. The percentage of American adults who read books has remained relatively unchanged in the past few years, reports the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project in a recent study [pdf]. Almost 3 in 4 adults say they had read a book in the 12 months prior to the survey, with printed books continuing to be the most popular format.

There's overlap between the groups -- 28 percent of respondents did not read a book at all in the past year, while 25 percent read between one and five books, 15 percent read between six and ten books, 20 percent read between 11 and eight percent read more than   24 percent of American adults haven't read a book in the past year—here's why.

Published Tue, Jan 29 PM EST Updated Tue. During a survey held in earlyit was found that 81 percent of adults aged between 18 and 29 years old had read a book in any format in the previous year. The. young people reading for pleasure stopped declining. The evolution of e-book reading is worth a closer look: 47% of readers aged un had read an e-book during the previous year and younger e-book readers were more likely to access titles on their cell phones or computer, while the older ones were reading on dedicated e-readers.

Our population is expected to grow to 10 billion by the end of this century, yet the Earth’s size remains the same. Slowing human population growth and lowering our use of natural resources are key to reducing the impact we have on the planet.

In countries with compulsory education, the answer of who reads any book at all at any time can be given by approximating through the literacy rate. Compulsory education means that those (citizens) will have to read books at least at some point in.

The share of Americans who read books on desktop or laptop computers has also increased, although by a more modest amount: 11% of Americans now do this, up from 7% in By contrast, 8% of Americans now report that they read books using dedicated e-reader devices – nearly identical to the 7% who reported doing so in   Several demographic traits correlate with non-book reading, Pew Research Center surveys have found.

For instance, adults with a high school diploma or less are far more likely than those with a bachelor’s or advanced degree to report not reading books in any format in the 12 months before the survey (44% vs.

8%). You're going to hate the answer, less than 15% of American's read books on any regular basis, here are some additional surprising statistics.1/3 of high school graduates never read another book.
