About This Quiz

The average human brain weighs about three pounds, and our head, as adults, weighs about 10 to 11 pounds. The human stomach is capable of holding an entire 32-ounce Big Gulp (maybe not comfortably, but it will all fit.) You think you know your fellow humans, but take this quiz to see how well you really know your fellow Americans, inside and out.

You might know common facts, like the average life expectancy of men and women in the United States, or their average heights. But do you know much time the average American child spends in front of some sort of screen? Or what expense, other than rent, makes up the majority of household costs? You might know the percent of Americans who graduate from high school, but do you know which state has the highest high school graduation rate in the United States? It's true that fewer and fewer people are smoking these days, but the number is still large. Can you guess how big it is?

If you think you're a master of census information and population trivia, take this quiz to see how much you truly know!
