Its interesting how you can make data tell you a completely different story depending on how its portrayed. The mean (average) birth year of the first 90 valid responses is 1952. The median is 1949. (half the responses are higher, and half responses are lower) When I grouped the responses by decade the picture showed a different story. There are a greater number of categories above the 1940's birth decade which supports the mean and median numbers but the 1940's are the most represented by a single group. If that makes any sense?

Again - Lies, Damn Lies, and Statistics. Remember that when listening to politicians and fact checking.


Quite simply that's the average known as the 'mode'. It comes from the French word for fashion.

I'm writing all the names and birth dates down in my journal. Can you guys please include the last 4 numbers to your social security cards so I can complete the requirements to earn my official Boy Scout phishing badge? Mama needs a new car and all this personal info stuff will help her to get one. :-) :-) :-)

June 1949. Pretty much average in most ways, I guess.

My year is 1934. When I had my 1931 Sport coup in 1953 and needed a part I just went to the Ford dealer. Remember buying a new hand brake for $5.00

When conversing on ANY subject, had a Friend who would make up PHONY statistics & make them sound BELIEVABLE!
If you didn't know WHEN you were born, how OLD would you be?

Good luck doing to a dealer and buying a 22 year old car part now haha seems everything goes obsolete 10 years after it was made.

I was born when I was still quite young, 1940 IIRC.
Got my first A when I was 16, or was it 17? I disremember.
