Everyone I knew that had amiga/Atari St when growing up used them 90% as gaming machines..
IMHO there was a lot more productivity software use back in the day than you seem to think. If only because the companies involved kept making new versions of their productivity programs right up to the mid 1990's. Unless all companies involved where purely charity based of course

Knowing now that the big-box Amiga's where really rather uncommon it stands to reason a considerable fraction of the small Amiga's was also used at least in part for productivity software.

(And secondly, I definitely used my Amiga 500&1200 for way more than just games - though that is an anecdote and not statistical evidence...)

Nope
