Doing research, thanks.
No one has that data. You could possibly do some extrapolation based the size the E-AB fleet and sales data from the major kit manufacturers, but it would still be an approximation at best.
Impossible to answer.
The term "participates in" would lend itself to all levels of participation. If a pilot occasionally helps a fellow pilot build his EAB, he has participated in building. If a pilot takes a ride in an EAB and gets some stick time, he has participated in flying one. You will need to narrow your scope to get accurate and meaningful data. Just do the research.
Even looking at the registration data or kit sales won't get you close. I'm the 4th owner of Candy. The registration relates to the builder but not the kit number. So there are at least 4 pilots "involved" with this one plane. And that doesn't include Skydog's observations.
I'd go with the EAA member size vs number of pilot certificates. Probably the best proxy measure since experimental advocates are MUCH more likely to be in EAA than the other well known advocacy groups. Also, supporting EAA is per se "participation""
The FAA publishes numbers.
The numbers are nonsense, but they are published.
(By the FAA definition, I am not an active pilot, but the picture to the left might suggest otherwise.)
I don't have an answer for you, but if I had the time, space and money I would be one.. I am an owner for over 20 years...
<1% - 580,000 US pilots, 180,000 EAA members worldwide.
Tiny number. It's even a minority of EAA members.

All of them
Well, we may have another datapoint about the app she wants to build. But this request repeats the question - does she have the domain knowledge to create the app?
strike 1 - won't answer any questions
strike 2 - doesn't understand difference between an app and a website
strike 3 - doesn't bother to check well known sources of information such as the FAA or the EAA. May not even know what either of them are.
I change my opinion that she's a 12 week wonder from a bootcamp to being the marketing person for a non-aviation product that's trying to find an aviation use for it.
I'd still like her to answer my earlier questions that in no way infringe on the concept, design or functionality of the app.
By the way Allison, you copyright the code, not the app. Go look up the Berne Convention of 1986, ratified in the US as the Berne Treaty, and subsequent opinions in US Courts relating to software.
Yes, I'm bored. Nav/coms not back from the shop.
Roughly 30,000 homebuilts registered in the US. Roughly 1,000 new homebuilts added to the rolls each year (with multiple hundreds removed).
I was taught the answer is always 6 except when it isn't.
I'm doing my part.....
If you count me I'm 100% but my wife if 0% so I would estimate about 50%.
5/4's of pilots build experimentals. But we aren't very good at fractions.
