Subject:  How many signers in the world?


August 15, 1999

Hello SignWriting List!

How many people in the world (both Deaf and hearing) use a signed language?
Does anyone know the current statistics?

I am writing a report to a foundation, and I need the statistic for the
report....

A long time ago I read that approximately 2% of the world's population uses
a signed language, but I wonder if that is true?

Thanks in advance for your help -

Valerie :-)
