Member Age Demographic Study

BobbyW had posted a poll to collect Community members ages. I tried to move the poll and screwed it up. So here it is again. If you voted before, please vote again!

Nice bell curve

I'm starting to feel lonely way out on the tail of the bell curve. Am I the only old fart here?

I wonder whether the curve represents A/S demographics, web-user demographics, or a combination of both. I'll bet it is the latter.

Ages

Do these results tell us the age of Airstreamers or the age of Airstreamers who use the internet and this forum?

Just wondering...

Q) Do you think the baby boomer's like airstreams?
A) Yes, I think Boomers do like Airstreams. The reason Airstream put the "Slide-out" feature in the newer models is so that the Boomers could put their Big Gigantic Screen HDTV's into the MH/Trailers.

Q)Do these results tell us the age of Airstreamers or the age of Airstreamers who use the internet and this forum?
A) Since only registered members can vote, this poll would only tell us ages of those that have joined the AirsteamForum family, which means you would have to have internet access. The poll does not ask if you actually own an Airstream product.

The Poll could also indicate that this is the more "Intelligent, Better Looking and Faster Living" Airstream crowd, which is what I tend to believe it does.

Interestingly enough, 50% of the respondents are 49 or younger. That seems to be consistent with the trend of younger RV buyers.

I consider myself intelligent. Some might disagree with me being better looking. As for faster living, Peter keeps telling me that 70-75 mph is too fast for my old motorhome.

Wrong Fred,
1.Intelligence
Young people THINK that old people are stupid.
Old people KNOW that young people are stupid.
2. better looking
Your Motorhome is good looking, you come in as a distant second
3. Faster living
75mph is not too fast for you and your old Motorhome. It's too fast for me sharing the road with you, since I do not want to loose my intelligence, good looks and fast life style.

Well, this poll sure puts the myth of " Only old people in Florida own Airstreams" to rest.

Bell-shaped curve

I'm amazed that there are no anomolies in the bell-shaped curve of member's ages. Takes me back to all those statistics classes!

I'll bet that the majority of the skew in the curve is because computer users are typically younger. I'll bet a true curve of Airstream owners indepent of computer use would peak at a much higher age.

Sorry John, I do see an anomaly...

It's not real apparent at first because the age brackets change from 10 year to 5 years segments after age 50.

Example:

20-29, 30-39, 40-49 = 10 years
50-54, 55-59, 60-64, etc. = 5 years

If you add the 50's or 60's together, you'll notice the bell curve doesn't drop off as rapidly as what it at first appears. Actually, their would be an anomaly in the 40-49 catagory (less people in their 40's than in their 50's).

Shari

P.S. Hey Andy, anyway to "fix this" so we only have 5 or 10 year groups, not both?

Angry No fix...

There is a limit of 12 options per poll. So I dont see an easy fix to get more options. Sorry!
