Who Buys Music Anymore? A Statistical Inquiry

Jenny Chang's blog post on BuzzFeed poses the question, "Who, exactly, is buying music these days?" So, who is buying music, and how are they buying music?
We now live in a day and age where most music sales are from digital formats such as music streaming services (Google Play Music, Rhapsody, Pandora) and digital downloads (iTunes, Amazon Music).
