UPDATED at 9 pm: Thank you for all of your responses. These numbers are fascinating, as predicted! The average size household among 24 respondents is 4 people exactly; the average number of loads per household is 8.125--two loads per person almost exactly. My math major husband wanted to figure more numbers and enter them into an Excel spreadsheet, but I told him these simple calculations would suffice. =)
The other day as I was doing laundry, I thought it would be interesting to find out how much you do in an average week! This is just for fun--motivated only by my curiosity. In the comments, please indicate how many people are in your household, followed by the average number of loads you do in the course of a week. Tomorrow, I'll compile the numbers and share the averages.
My response would be 3, 4--3 people, 4 loads. Thanks for sharing--I think the results will be fascinating!
