How many vegans are there?

You know the old joke – how can you tell if somebody is vegan? Don’t worry, they’ll tell you.

According to a recent Gallup poll, only 5% of Americans are vegetarians, and just 3% of Americans say they’re vegan.

These percentages really haven’t changed that much since Gallup started conducting their Veganism and Vegetarianism survey in 1999.

Interesting that those who earn less than $30,000 a year are more likely to be vegetarians than those in higher tax brackets.
