Only 10% of Americans Have Passports? Not True It Seems…

American PassportsThere is a belief that only 10% of Americans actually have passports, so as you’re an international cell phone owner, this suggests you are among the minority of adventurous globe-trotting souls.

However, thanks to the data released by the US government on their data.gov site, this may not be true…

The C.G.P. Grey website took the data from the government, mixed it with some data from the 2000 census, and came up with the following percentages…

American Passport Ownership Percentage State by State

  • NEW JERSEY – 68.36%

  • Donald Newcomb says:

    Of course the percentage of passport holders has increased recently due to the requirement to have a passport for cruise ship travel, etc.


  • Sarnia Guiton says:

    Was this before they needed a passport to get in and out of Canada and Mexico or after?
    That would make a big difference.


  • Charlie Bond says:

    What is that a percentage of? All citizens? Adults? I assure you 59.96 % of the 1.3mm citizens of the state of New Hampshire do not have passports.
