It’s the first of the month and that means a new look at the demographics of people who “like” comics on Facebook. This data is compiled using demographic data from Facebook, and is limited to the United States.
This data is compiled using key terms, “likes,” users have as part of their profiles. Primarily terms are focused on generic ones such as “comics” or “graphic novels” or publishers. I stay away from specific characters, creators or series, because this does not indicate they are a comic book fan. Over 100 terms are used for this report.
Facebook Population: Over 24,000,000 in the United States
The total population has remained the same from last month. The Spanish-speaking population last month was 13.33%, and this month is 14.17%.
Gender and Age
Last month women accounted for 45% and men were 57.50%. Women remained the same as last month, but men increased to 58.33%. The results add up to over 100% due to the fact Facebook with large numbers doesn’t give an exact amount to the single digit.
Compared to last month, the numbers have remained pretty steady. The amount of individuals married dipped a bit as well as those in complicated relationships and those divorced. Those separated increased from last month.
Compared to last month, the results for education is pretty much the same.
Compared to last month those marking their interest as unspecified has increased.
And that wraps up this month’s report.
