Profiling the Bird Owner

According to the AVMA, in 78.2% of bird owning households females are the primary person responsible for care of the bird. One interesting piece of data is that while 58.7% of bird-households own only one bird, 12.6% of bird-households own four or more birds as shown in the table below.


Figure 6: Number of Birds in Bird-owning Households

According to the AVMA, the likelihood of a household owning a bird increases with the number of people living in the household as can be seen in the graph below.


Figure 7: Percentage of Households that own Birds by Size of Household

In the most recent survey by AVMA (2001 data), it was found that household income levels were not a big determining factor in the ownership of birds. In other words, 4.2% of households with income over $85,000 owned birds and 5.1% of households with income less than $20,000 owned birds.
