Maybe the 1% represents the number who have read through the entire Bible straight through, cover to cover. (I admit that I have not)
But don't forget, the core element of Christianity is that salvation is not based on any level of knowledge, biblical understanding, or good works.
Instead, it hinges on one specific moment that can be attained by anyone, no matter how poor, sinful, or uneducated. So therein lies the point, that
you don't need to read anything or complete a check list to get it.
But you have a good point: true Christians would be driven to read the Bible, fellowship with other believers, and live their lives differently.
Unfortunately, what you're alluding to is probably correct: that many of these folks are no more Christian than an athiest.
I also think that some denominations, Catholicism for instance, stray so far from biblical teaching, that it even further decreases that statistic.
