This information comes from Jamie Ellis, a professor of entomology at the University of Florida and The Honey Bee Research and Extension Laboratory. Prof Ellis did a Q&A on Reddit yesterday and he gave this tidbit of information that I thought was interesting.

Backyard beekeepers are 84% of beekeepers with 5% of the colonies.

Sideline beekeepers are 5% of beekeepers with 3% of the colonies.

Commercial beekeepers are 11% of beekeepers with 92% of colonies.
