ANSWERS: 17
• i only have 10 cousins not many compared to some people
• I have 6 cousins. My guess the average is around 10 and will grow smaller as birth rates drop.
• I have 16 but no idea what the average would be!!!
• i would say 6 is teh average, with the falling birth rate an all' i have 11 on my mum's side and no idea how many on my dad's side.
• That all depends on the culture and the common family size within that culture ... China currently has laws that limit family size and cousins typically number only one or two, while elsewhere families may have 10 or more children, then 200 cousins would be common. I have 119.
• I think I have 14 first cousins, from what I can remember right now. I think I need to go to bed...lol. I suppose that is around an average number. I would have no idea what an average number of cousins would be, though.
• I have 11, our family has a lot of only children :)
• 6
• i have...7 first cousins that i know about. my mom has 3 half siblings she's never met, so they might have children which would cause a couple more for me, but i don't know. i'm not sure what the average should be like...i have a huge family but i know people that don't have cousins at all so...i guess maybe like...6ish might be average? who knows.
• I have 11 first cousins.
• Depends what you take the average amount of children to be. If you take it as 2.4, (though nowadays this has decreased), you get an average of 6.7 1st cousins. (each parent on average has 1.4 siblings with these having 2.4 children, 2*1.4*2.4 = 6.72
• I got 3
• The average depends on the geographical area / culture / traditions. I have 19 1st cousins. (Clearly a family in need of a better pass time)
• there is no limit
• An average number of cousins? Boy, I didn't quite realize that the government was now even controling the number of relatives one is permitted to have...
• I would think the average is around five or six, though I have around forty.
• it depends if you include all your distant cousins there is no average number
