Property investor statistics



From: Debra L

I just have a few trivia questions and was wondering if anyone on the forum might know the statistics.

The questions are as follows:

1. What percentage of the Australian population are involved in property investment?

2. How many books on the subject of property investment are sold each year in Australia/Worldwide?

3. What is the average number of books that people on this forum own/have read?

4. What is the current percentage of property investors in Australia who own three or more properties?

5. Of the total investments by individuals in Australia, how much is invested in the Sharemarket and how much in property in $?

6. Which property investment book has sold the most copies?

Thank you in advance for your responses.
