What Percent Of Population Is Vegan?

How many vegans does it take to make a difference? For some reason, I’ve been thinking about this question lately. I’m not sure why; it probably has something to do with the fact that the “vegan movement” is expanding so rapidly, and I’m wondering what that means for the future.


  1. 0

    Vegans, with a diet including vegetables, fruits, grains, nuts, and seeds but no animal products, made up about 0.5 percent of the U.S. population. Vegetarians, who don’t eat meat but do consume eggs and dairy, made up about 1.

  2. 0

    According to Wikipedia (source) In 2018, in the U.S. there were about 16 million vegetarians (5% of population) and 7.5 million vegans (3% of population)

    According to the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service in 2011, in the U.S., there were about 2.8 million vegans and 3.4 million vegetarians.

    So, you can see that every year the number of people on a plant-based diet grows 25%.
