I haven't responded to this thread until now because it is my policy not to
focus on chronological age. It is merely one aspect of measuring one's life
value. Judging by "how old are you?" places individuals in catagories which
may not be accurate and in keeping with _who_ they are. Functional age,
intellectual age, emotional age and physiological age are as important as
chronological age. Also, placing over zealous emphasis on chronological age
often welcomes ageist thinking and is counter productive to breaking through
pre-transhuman dogmas.

But, to be helpful to your query, Extropy magazine did a survey which showed
a breakdown of readers being of chronological ages from 16 to 70s and that
30s is the most "common" age.
