What percentage of households own computers in 2008?
I've been looking on Google but the closest I can get to the full answer right now is 59.4% of households owning computers in 2008 were single-person households. Anyone else have a link to help get a little closer to the whole thing? It would be much appreciated.

Because there are many ways to "own" stock, this question can have many answers. For example, if you own a mutual fund in your company's retirement plan, you can be said to be the "owner" of the stocks that are in the mutual fund. That's in spite of the fact that you probably don't know what they ar…e, and you have no voting control in either the stocks themselves or the mutual fund. The most commonly offered answer to this question uses this broad, and, arguably meaningless definition.. The Mutual Fund Industry group - Investment Company Institute - has a lot of data on this subject. Its 2002 study, http://www.ici.org/pdf/rpt_02_equity_owners.pdf showed that 49.5% (or 52.7 million) of US Households owned equities in some way shape or form in 2002. However, only 21 million (less than 20%) owned individual stocks outside an employee sponsored plan.. There is an important distinction here. When politicians talk about eliminating the capital gains tax, it is only these 21 million households who will pay lower taxes, because retirement investments are tax deferred while you hold them, and then taxed at regular income tax rates when you take the money out.. I haven't found a more up to date study, but than number was actually a little bit lower than it was in 1999 (peak of the Internet boom) so I doubt it's changed much.. There are also figures given for those who own equity mutual funds outside of an employee sponsored plan - 28.7 million households - as well as 35.9 million households who represent those who own either individual stocks or mutual funds or both. I'm not comfortable with either of those, as subsequent ICI studies suggest that the majority of the Mutual Fund investing households are holding their funds in IRAs or other tax deferred plans - so they, too, pay regular income tax, at the time of withdrawal, on capital gains and dividends.

This will vary from country to country, and from region to region. It will vary yearly and throughout the year, and will be different for different social and financial classes. Strictly speaking, disposable income means: Gross income less tax, the balance all being 'disposable'. However, mos…t people are more interested in what is known as discretionary income, which is: Gross Income less Taxes less Necessities such as basic housing costs, transport, food etc. The residue is money that can be saved or spent on non-essentials. To confuse matters, the term 'disposable income' is often used when 'discretionary' income is actually meant. Governments and economists collect a lot of data on this type of information, and much of it is accessible to the public. The Media and Press are also very interested in giving wide publicity to changes in disposable income. For more information, see Related links below this box. (MORE)
