Do you know how many people in the United States have a valid US passport? Recent passport studies say that approximately 30% of US citizens have passports. Some people think that this is number is high. However, that means that 70% of Americans do not have passports.
Some states rank higher than others. New Jersey and Alaska are believed to have the highest passport ownership percentage rates at approximately 60%.
It seems that there may be a trend with citizens living inland as states like Mississippi. Only 20% of people living in Mississippi have a US passport.
This means that over 200 million US citizens do not have passports. Why do such a large number of people not have their passports? Will there come a time that the government will require all citizens to have a passport?
