While there is no sure fire way to determine an accurate number of dollars and percentages that out of county residents spend in any particular county, the link provided is the best estimate any organization has come up with that comes close to an accurate number of percentages.<quoted text>
Obviously you both skipped 3rd Grade in Union Elementary. The numbers from page 53 say "0.10%, not "10%". They say "0.10%". Here's a quick remedial math lesson for you two:
10%= ten percent = 1 out of every ten
0.10%= 1/10 of 1 percent = 1 out of 1000
Would you two geniuses care to go back and review the document and try again to decipher what the report is saying? I know - but I am not sure either of you has the capacity to figure it out.
Can anyone here interpret what the report is saying, and to be precise, the Union County numbers from that table are NOT on page 53, but are on page 57, "Union" being at the end of the alphabet and towards the end of the chart.
Good name for you and your post proves it.
The dewey decimal system has confused many a person, sorry you have met your match.
Page 57 is a part of the Appendices, page 53 has Union county on it.
The total for all counties listed is 100%.
Using your computer calculator:
multiply 100 * 10 and select the % key and you will get 10.
multiply 100 *.10 and select the = key and you will get 10.
10% is 10% both ways
The 1/10 percent you reference is on a State level in relation to all the other counties.
See page 46 of that report for dollar amounts and see if you can decipher percentages from it, good luck! I think you are going to need it.
