Guesstimation

Behind the cut are three questions that ask you to estimate what percentage of the population of your country falls into a certain demographic. For the purposes of this poll, put out of your mind any studies you've read or heard of, anything you've read on tv or the internet or what anyone has told you. Try and base your answer on your life experience. The poll is about perception, not accuracy.

Also, use whatever definition of the terms in the question that you interpret them to mean. Don't worry about pinning down an exact meaning of terms such as "obese" or "illegal drugs". Answer the question based on what you thing a reasonable meaning for the term is.
