How many PF users are from English-speaking First World countries?

  • Thread starter StatGuy2000
  • Start date
In summary, the conversation was about starting a new poll to ask how many people are from English-speaking First World countries such as USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand. The criteria for being considered from these countries were either being born and raised there, or being raised there from childhood into adulthood. The poll was created for people to vote for their preferred option. It was also mentioned that when referring to the United Kingdom, all regions, including current colonies/dependencies, were included. The same applied for the USA, with US territories being taken into account. Dependencies for Australia and New Zealand, such as Christmas Island and Cook Islands, were also included.

Which country are you from?

Hi everyone! Just for fun, I thought I'd start a new poll asking how many of you are from the English-speaking First World countries: USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand.

Just to clarify, when I ask where someone is "from", I am asking the following criteria:

1. Those who were born and raised in said country (and presumably hold citizenship in said country, although I'm not concerned about citizenship status),

or

2. Those who were raised in said country (i.e. those who may have been born elsewhere, but were raised in the above countries from childhood into adulthood).

I put a poll here so that you could vote for the above choices.

Note:

(a) I am confident that people on PF know this already, but when I mention the United Kingdom, I am taking into account people from all of the regions of the UK -- England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man, the Channel Islands. I am also taking into account those who come from current colonies/dependencies of the United Kingdom (e.g. Bermuda, the Falkland Islands, Gibraltar, the Pitcairn Islands, etc.)

(b) When I mention USA, I am also taking into account those who come from US territories, (e.g. Guam, Puerto Rico, or American Samoa).

(c) When I mention Australia or New Zealand, I am also taking into account those who come from dependencies from either country (e.g. Christmas Island and Norfolk Islands for Australia, Cook Islands for New Zealand).
