Statistics

Today we introduce two interesting polls from Japan.

Poll #1 is the all important issue of whether men stand or sit while urinating.

In a survey from the Japan Toilet Institute, 44% of men between the ages of 20 and 69 sit while urinating.

35.3% said they sit out of their own volition. 8.3% were told/requested by their family or spouse to sit and thus made the transition from standing to sitting.

A second poll was of Japanese views of US President Donald Trump. A telephone survey asked, "How trustworthy is Donald Trump as the leader of an allied country (to Japan)?"

13% - Do not trust at all
48% - Do not trust much
34% - Trust somewhat
3% - Trust very much
