We in the 65+ have a lot more energy than the individual depicted in your image. I feel more like the 45-54 individual :D :D

Still only 57 out of over 3,000 have responded. to be statistically reliable how many do we need ?


What age group am I ?

during last week's snow I was pleased that I am old enough not to have to go to work,
but young enough to walk to and from the shops to get some more food in. :D

Once we get 100+ responses, we'll be able to draw the chart properly. At the meantime, we have a normal distribution (stats term), the average (u) being the 45-54 group.

Update at 100th vote:
Image
1. 84% of the group members aged 35 or more.
2. The average age group is 45-54.
3. 3/4 or 75% of the members fall within the 35-64 age groups.

Hope we can draw a new chart when we reach 200 response rate. :D :D :D
