Your back of the napkin familiarity on the subject matter in an age of scientific hyper specialization makes any opinion you have on the matter totally moot.

How on earth do you think you could possibly add any line of thinking that hasn't already been thought of, proposed, hashed over, and sorted out by the people who've been studying these lines of science for decades?

They could know it (well, say it with confidence) from a limited number of users who participate in detailed opt-in telemetry. They could collect it from surveys. They could make estimations. They could infer it from indirect but related telemetry you're aware of. It's not like they said, "We know exact numbers." For the sake of the point being made, it's a claim that they can say with confidence.
