In the United Kingdom, the share of vegetarians was higher among younger respondents than in other age groups. Of those aged 20 to 29, ten percent stated that they follow vegetarian nutrition rules. Among those 40 years old or older the share of those who do not eat meat and fish was noticeable smaller.
The original survey question was: "Do you follow one or more of the following nutrition rules?" This statistic shows the share of all who answered "Vegetarian (not eating meat and fish)".
