I'm confusing with numbers

US have population as 316 miliions.

Reference link :
You can see "Nearly Three in Ten Americans Have Ever Listened to an Audio Podcast"

This mean that population is approximately 100milions.

Link says
2012 = 29
2011 = 25

( * I can't see any measures. )

three in ten -> 1/3 -> population 316 millions -> 100 millions -> numbers 29 may not 290millions
because it's 2.8/3 approximately. not 1/3
Number 29 is 29millions.

1. What's wrong?
confusing numbers...........................................

2. or research company lies?

Your sincerely.

    You are mistaken. In the sentence below the graph, he states "In 2012, that number is 29%. " The number 29 is percent, so that he is correct when he says "nearly 3 in 10", which would be 30%.
