FC 2010 Dealer's room - unofficial statistics
I've always been curious about what the variety of things for sale in the dealer's room at furry conventions are, so at FC 2010 I decided to get some rough numbers. I probably made some mistakes along the way, but I think it's generally reliable. It should not be assumed to apply for any other conventions except this one, this year.
The variables I recorded:
1. Artwork (yes/no) (prints, comics, art CDs)
2. Any adult material (yes/no)
3. G/PG material only (yes/no)
4. Gender of vendor
|Selling adult material:||63|
|Selling adult artwork:||58|
|Male vendors selling adult artwork:||30|
|Female vendors selling adult artwork:||28|
|Selling G/PG artwork only:||17|
|Male vendors selling G/PG artwork only:||6|
|Female vendors selling G/PG artwork only:||11|
|Selling pin-up artwork (neither adult nor G/PG):||24|
|Male vendors selling pin-up artwork:||6|
|Female vendors selling pin-up artwork:||18|
So, to generalize:
50% of dealers in the dealer's room sold adult material.
80% of dealers sold artwork.
92% of dealers selling adult material sold artwork.
59% of dealers selling artwork sold adult material.
24% of dealers selling artwork sold pin-ups.
17% of dealers selling artwork sold G/PG material.
58% of dealers selling artwork were women.
Men and women had adult artwork for sale roughly equally.
Twice as many women had G/PG artwork for sale than men.
Three times as many women had pin-up artwork for sale than men.
