The subject of the average age of a MacRumors members has come up repeatedly over the years, along with questions about who is the youngest member. Here are a few of the previous threads: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. There was a MacPolls question about ages in February 2003. Using my own computations, I present here what I think is an accurate graph of the distribution of ages of currently registered MacRumors members. I have excluded members who are not yet 13 (the minimum to join without permission of a parent or guardian) and I have excluded members who I believe posted incorrect ages as jokes or by mistake. Most members don't post their year of birth, so this is based only on those who do. That subset may not represent the overall membership, but it's the closest we can get. The X axis is the member age, from 13 to 81. The Y axis is the number of registered members with that age. This result is part of an effort I've made over the last weeks to compute some statistics about MacRumors members and look for interesting facts. The age distribution, being of more general interest than the other stats I've posted, deserved its own thread. According to my results, there are 9 registered thirteen-year-old members, 71 fourteen-year-old members, and 39 registered members over the age of 65. I found that the mean average age is 30.3, with a wide range around that average (a standard deviation of 10.3). The curve is weighted towards the left, reaching a maximum (the most common age) at 23, with 24 in second place. It drops off rapidly from mid 30s to mid 40s (careers? families?), but has only a gradual decline across the 50s and a long tail of senior citizen members. The number of 22-year-olds is greater than the number of 21-year-olds by only a single member. But of course the MacRumors age distribution changes slightly every time a member joins or has a birthday, so the exact numbers change daily. Still, the shape of this curve probably stays pretty much the same over time.
