What percent of US population has completed an ultra-marathon?
Certainly less than one tenth of one percent of the US population has attempted this physical feat successfully. A 100 kilometer run completed within 24 hours by a Battalion sized unit in full pack and gear may have never been completed with a 100 % rate. Water is usually the determining factor. During the Kennedy Administration he challenged Marines to complete a 50 mile march within 24 hours and still be ready for Combat. That meant that at the end of that arduous hike, they were required to complete the PRT within the same 24 hours. Mortality became a serious issue when it was attempted at the Schools Demonstration Troops at Quantico, Virginia. The hike could be handled by 90% of the troops, but less than 50% of those that completed the hike managed to pass the PRT test in at least one element and were therefore considered unprepared for combat. That damning criticism lead to many retirements. No Marine wants to be considered as unprepared to go into combat,

Headline numbers are scary with 600,000 laid off in a month being comparable to a depression like number (gross). But the population is larger so as a percentage the 600…,000 number is actually less than depression like (net). To the question; As of 2/7/2009 60.5 percent of the population is (legally) employed...very bad as this also includes all government workers (public sector) who derive their salary from taxes gathered from employees in the private sector (cashiers,realtors etc.).

Blacks make up 12.85% of the US population.
Muslims comprised 1.6% of the US population in 2005.

Currently there are less than 1% of the US population serving in the US Army
The population of Canada is about 33 million persons (2010) and that of the United States is about 303 million (2010). So US population is about 918% of the population of Cana…da. Conversely the the population of Canada as a percentage of the United States population is just over 10%.
i do not know for sure , but a lot. Because imagine all those Kids like me who grow up and become parents. For example, a mom has 19 children, that's a lot. Now imagine all th…ose kids growing up and also becoming parents.so that is how much i know about the percent of parents in the U.S. i could guess about 80 percent
approx 15000 in north america, i.e., 15000 divided by approx 300M => a very very small percentage...
16% as of March 2010.
0 percent, USA is the most powerful country on earth and the only 'addicts' in here are illegal immigrants from other countries who abuse substances and drugs.
