In brief: 8 %

Color blindness is an inherited deficiency in color recognition which occurs in about 7.
5% of males and 1/2% of females. There are some variations in different racial and country groups. It is generally not functionally a problem except for certain occupational groups such as fruit graders, painters, etc.
