Assuming a household size of 2.58, a US population of about 318 million, and an annual sales figure of about 15 million we can say that the US buys about one car for every eight households every year.
Here is my thought process:
15 million * 21 = 315 million which is about 318 million
so about one car gets sold for every 21 people per year in the US
21/2.58 = 8.139 which is about 8
so about one car gets sold for every eight households per year in the US
Does this logic make any sense? Please leave a comment.
