USA has 50% more vegans since 2012

The latest Gallup Poll reported that the number saying they are vegans rose from 2% to 3%, a 50% increase, while the number of vegetarians remained unchanged for the same period.

Applying these percentages of 3% and 2% to the US population of 325.7 million in 2017 (the most recent available from the US Census Bureau) versus 311.6 million in 2011 respectively, it would yield 9.7 million versus 6.2 million, an increase of roughly 3.5 million vegans in the past 6 years.

More insight into the poll numbers can be gleaned when looking at age groups, politics and income.
