According to a Gallup poll, the number of Americans that say they are vegan rose to 3% in 2018 from 2% in 2012.

Based on the US Census Bureau statistics for 2018, 3% of the population translates to 9,816,000. Compared to 2% of the population in 2012, 6,280,000, this means there are 3,536,000 more vegans in 2018 versus 6 years earlier.

About 5 percent of U.S. adults these days — which would mean roughly 16.4 million people — consider themselves vegetarians, according to a Gallup poll conducted in July 2018.

The age of Vegans was commonly found among those 18 to 29 as among people 65 and older (3 percent of both age groups), Gallup reported. Vegetarians though, were more prevalent in younger adults, from ages 18 to 49, than those 50 and older (7 to 8 percent vs. 2 to 3 percent).

Based on their findings for veganism and vegetarianism, Gallup concludes that "Americans are eager to include alternatives to animal products in their diets but are not willing to give up animal products completely".
