So Young, So Old
Nathan Yau at Flowing Data has produced an interactive graphic to compare your age with others. What percentage of the US population is younger than you? What percentage is older? In the static image above the US median age appears to be about 37 years old. Based on a 5-year American Community Survey from 2014, his interactive graphs lets you slide the line to match any age and see the percentage of Americans older or younger.
