okay but i REALLY need to know more about the demographic of hogwarts students in relation to their houses
do all houses have about the same amount of students? if not, do some houses generally have more/fewer students than others or does this change every year? and if some houses generally have more students than others, what affects this?
is there a noticeable difference between the houses pre-hogwarts kids want to be in versus the amount of students that actually end up in that house?
is this due to history? politics? were there less slytherin students after the first and second wizarding war because it was said to be the “death eather house”?
(did like 90% of kids born in, say, the 1990′s and 2000′s, want to be in gryffindor because that’s where the trio was? did celebrity culture influence this in general?)
is the gender distribution equal or do some houses generally have more female or more male students? if so, which houses are predominantly female or predominantly male? how do other qualifiers such as class or race play into this, if at all? did a lot of students from working class families end up in hufflepuff because their upbringing taught them to value hard work and dedication (typical hufflepuff values)?
what jobs are “typical” for houses? if there is a noticeable difference between houses, what fields would students of a specific house generally excel in the most? for example, do a lot of hufflepuffs go into law, compared to other houses? do a lot of gryffindors go into politics or activism?
jkr take cursed child back and give me answers instead
