Age Demographics of Readers

April 2, 2015 Sunday Poll 1 Comment

After a little more than 3 hours into the Sunday Poll I noticed someone had just made repeated votes for two categories that minutes earlier had none — so I immediately stopped the poll. Here are the results prior to the vote tampering:

Q: What is your age?

  • Less than 12: 0 [0%]
  • 12-17: 0 [0%]
  • 18-24: 1 [1.35%
  • 25-34: 9 [12.16%]
  • 35-44: 4 [5.41%]
  • 45-54: 5 [6.76%]
  • 55-64: 2 [2.7%]
  • 65-74: 3 [4.05%]
  • 75+: 0 [0%]

Twenty-four votes isn’t many, but this is about what’s received by that point each Sunday. Minutes later I noticed the “Less than 12” and “75+” answers each now had 25 votes, for a total of 74. I get it — not everyone likes to disclose their age — even anonymously in 10-year categories. I don’t get sabotaging the poll.

Facebook shows me demographics of the "engaged" persons on the Facebook page. The top row is female, the bottom row male.

The early poll results show an older demographic than the engaged readers on Facebook — not surprising. In February I turned 48 — looking forward to AARP discounts in two years.
