Some interesting statistics

Posted by Manuel Frutos-Perez on October 6 2010 at 3:33 p.m.

The estimated total world population is around 6.8 billion. The number of virtual world accounts worldwide has just topped 1 billion. So, even though quite a few people are likely to have more than one virtual world account, that still means that a surprisingly high proportion of the world’s population has a virtual world account.  46% of those accounts are held by children aged 10 – 15, that’s 468 million accounts. The organsiations that watch these things, like kzero, predict that the age group to watch in the next 18 months for increased usage of virtual worlds is the 15 – 25 year olds. What is the main age group of university entrants??
