How many Buddhists?
Somewhere between 3 to 4 million US Buddhists
(~0.7% - 1% of population)

About a 60/40 split between Asian Americans and non-Asian Americans (white, African American, Hispanic).

2008 Pew Forum found roughly even split between different traditions:

Theravada (Vipassana) Buddhism <0.3
Mahayana (Zen) Buddhism <0.3
Vajrayana (Tibetan) Buddhism <0.3
Other Buddhist groups <0.3
Buddhist, not further specified 0.3

Unfortunately, their methods are flawed and it's impossible to determine to what these categories refer.
