Some quick convention attendance math


I was doing some math to compare NYCC attendance in 2010 and 2013 to see how the show has grown both in size and based on gender. Here’s what I found:

Men
2010: 65% of 96,000 total = 62,400 men
2013: 59% of 133,000 total = 78,470 men
16,070 more men in 3 years
26% growth rate
Women

2010: 35% of 96,000 total = 33,600 women

2013: 41% of 133,000 total = 54,530 women
20,930 more women in 3 years
62% growth rate
While men still outnumber women as NYCC attendees, women as attendees are a demo that is growing WAY faster.
Take notes, comics people.
