Someone once said, “There are lies, there are damned lies, and then there are statistics.” This is because data can be skewed and misrepresented most times. Still, information is valuable and usually worth examining. In this regard, stats, of any kind, are useful. It’s just a matter of interpreting the raw materials.

 

Rusty at True Prepper reviewed seven statistics about preppers that may surprise you. Please read his analysis and see if you can come to your own conclusions about the lifestyle.

 

His review shows things to be proud of and areas of concern. Have a look:

“Prepping statistics are almost always surprising, but a few on this list may cause you to do a double take. Unbelievable stats can be harrowing and frustrating, but they can also motivate logical people to be even more prepared. Before we get too far into the discussion, I’ll go ahead and admit it; I’m a data nerd. If you haven’t gathered that fact by seeing me crunch the probabilities, impacts, and tangible risks into our TrueRisk index- then you haven’t been paying attention. Numbers and statistics can provide very clear pictures of what is going on in the world. Prepping statistics are particularly useful for convincing others how important being prepared actually is. Sometimes stats can catch even a seasoned prepper off guard with shocking evidence of the importance of preparedness. I’ve grabbed the prepping statistics that have caught my eye over the years and share them below. Feel free to share with any ‘naysayers’ who feel that a prepping lifestyle simply isn’t important.”

One. The federal government has increased emergency disaster spending by 6,698% of the past fifty or so years. Why? All government spending is way up but does this equal to better responses?

 

Two. Only about a third of Americans have an emergency plan. I’m a little surprised it’s that many.

 

Three. 75% of health care professionals are unprepared. This is amazing. Maybe it’s because they always have direct proximity to services. Is this false security?

 

Four. 44% of American home lack first aid kits. Truly amazing. How do they handle band aid situations?

 

Five. The CPR survival rate is only about 20%. Defibrillation nearly triples this rate. Time to invest in “shock” therapy?

 

Six. 42% of Americans don’t know their relatives’ phone numbers. A curse of the smartphone age? I’m guilty of this!

 

Seven. Over 50% of Americans don’t have copies of vital records. While it’s not essential for immediate survival it does make recovery easier. File that away…

 

Following the information and numbers, Rusty throws out some very good resources for dealing with these issues. Please check them out.

 

Sometimes numbers do lie. Sometimes they don’t. Either way, we can still learn and improve from the analysis. Plot that graph.
