I think the age stats skew a lot of the others...like having children, groceries versus eating out, marital status...

except for being a woman, I defy the majority of the demographic. Cool!

It is interesting, but I think that has a lot to do with the fact that they got their information from responses to a FB survey.

It's a tiny sample size that contradicts larger polls. This infographic was made from a poll of 144 facebook users.

The gender split is actually about 50/50 according to a recent poll of 1010 random adults by Harris Interactive.

Facebook doesn't provide very good representative sampling.
The size of the group is a little small too.

Facebook population is specific, especially for age. And as you say the crazy size of the group probably mans that it targetted an already specific group, wich seems located in Baltimore.
Most probably this one internally : http://www.facebook.com/thevegetarianresourcegroup
They also have a website : http://www.vrg.org/blog/

It's a good idea but the stats are of course wrong. If you want the stats for the whole world, you need to target a least a few thousands per country, with a serious representation of gender, age, etc, rather than targetting a small group already so filtered and selective.

Some of the smartest people I know don't have degrees.
