    Which country has the most households with a soccer ball?

    According to USA today Sweden leads the world with 61% of households in Sweden owning a soccer ball.

    Surprisingly, 41% of American households own a soccerball.

    I have to wonder about the accuracy of this survey as I would think the UK or Brazil would rank pretty high on this survey.

    There's several demographic factors that come into play of course.

    I think it is pretty obvious that China has the most balls.

    Approximate Total population = 1 billion
    Approximate Percentage of Males = 50%
    Approximate Number of Balls per Male = 2

    1 billion * 0.50 * 2 = 1 billion

    Actually, because of the whole one child per family rule in China that was instituted, the percentage of China's population that is male is well above 50%, but you also have to take into account one-balled freaks, eunechs, and those people who have undecended testes.
