There are roughly 400 million people in the US About 100 million people live in areas where having a snow shovel would make sense (NY and Pennsylvania are large) A snow shovel likely only needs to be replaced every 10 years 100/10 = 10 million The average home size is ~2.5 10/2.5 = 4 million homes each home likely has about 1.5 shovels on average 4*1.5 = 6 My educated guess would be 6 million (although my intuition is this is a little high)

All of them. Every single one that was purchased.

None. I have yet to meet a snow shovel capable of selling anything.

January 22, 2014 To Whom It May Concern, I am applying for the position of Office Administrator with your company. After reviewing my resume', I feel you will agree that my experience & skills make me a perfect candidate to fill the position. I look forward to talking with you in the near future in regard to the position. Hopefully more than AK-47's.

Well, since this is a LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT question, I suggest we re-evaluate our priorities and strike this question in lieu of a more relevant one.

I would guess that about 20% of americans are homeowners - about 60 million people. Among them, only about 20% live a climate cold enough to warrant a snow shovel - 12 million people. Those people don't need to buy snow shovels very frequently. A good snow shovel will last you about 6 years - 2 million. I would estimate that 2 million snow shovels are sold each year in the US.

More than the year before, based on the recent weather.

Enough to get the job done for the people that bought them.

Only the ones that had a Free Taser coupon from your company attached to them. You should know the figure - you work here - don't you ?
