Harry Potter Numbers


While you were counting down until 12:01 am:

  • Among 1,041 adults nationwide, 25% say they or someone in their household are "planning to buy the new Harry Potter book;" 74% say they are not (conducted 7/13 through 7/16 by the Pew Research Center; article, results).
  • Among 1,000 adults, 76% have not read any of the Harry Potter books while 10% say they have read all of the books (conducted 7/13 through 7/14 by Rasmussen Reports).
  • The Numbers Guy Carl Bialik -- channeling a cunning use of Specialis Revelio "remedial math" -- explains how 1,200 copies, not 120 copies, of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows have been prematurely distributed.
