That statistic is virtually irrelevant because many users will already 
have a PDF reader installed, in which case they won't need to download 
it and won't be counted by that counter.  Besides, Adobe Acrobat isn't 
even the only software available to read them.

That depends entirely upon the purpose of the PDF document.  I think you 
should read Joe Clark's article about PDF accessibility.
