What % of long term traders and investors withdraw (and spend) dividends?

  1. Are there any statistics if dividends are mostly reinvested, or withdrawn from the accounts and spent?
  2. An interesting question. Why does it matter? Just curious?
  3. To learn if most people (your potential clients as a money manager), are mostly interested in an income, or a return strategy.
  4. My universe of people that I know their finances is very small, but I don't know or have heard of anyone using stocks as income. Bonds yes (esp. muni's for their tax advantage), but stocks no.
