Default 1% may be low, may not be.

One of the first rules of being a prepper is not to talk too much about it.
Personally, I think we as a society should talk more about "what would happen if the electric grid were to go down"? Or similar issue.

I've asked that question to a lot of people, and it's interesting to hear the responses. Some people just make a joke of it and say, "well, we'd be in the dark". But more often, the smart people, say, "oh my!" Especially when they think that with no power, there would be no running water, no refrigeration, no fuel (pumps won't work, and refineries would be shut down). And it just snowballs from there.

I know my simple question has caused many people to stock up on a lot of every day supplies. (canned food, TP, water, etc. ) But would these people be considered preppers?

A lot of people might have a pantry full of canned food, but unless they have the means of cooking it, and the means to can their own food, they are only being able to survive. Personally I plan to thrive.
