This is a truly amazing statistic!

The most common age of ALL Americans is 27
The same age of black Americans is 27
The same age of "all minorities" is 27

BUT, the most common age of white Americans is 58!

Seems impossible on the face. Check the chart.....

https://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...=.fa0f3e6890c1

As the article says, it also represents why we have "minority rule" to a degree because older Americans turn out to vote more often.

Another interesting chart there shows that white Americans were almost evenly split (D/R) at only two times in recent years - first during part of the Clinton POTUS and then after the Failed GWB Economy (2008/2009), but as the same chart shows they quickly go back to MaMa R.

Lots of interesting info in that article....no personal opinion here, just looking at data for what it is.

It's the most common age Craig, not the average age.

Exactly! Fake news.




If you have a set 1, 2, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8; the most common number is 2, the average is 3.8, and the median is 4.



Choose what you want to write about.

Want to write a fake story on how the youth are the most common choose most common.



Want to write how the country is hanging on to its groove as they get older, choose average.



Want to write how most of the country is decrepit, old and just should die off, choose median - half the country is over 4.



Fake garbage peddled as insightful.

Neither good nor bad. Just is.

Are you really going to just edit your OP and not acknowledge the fact that you had no idea what the link data actually meant when you started this thread?

Lots of factors make 58 the most common age for whites - birth year coinciding with a good economy, easier immigration for established people coming from Europe, taking good care of themselves in their youth, etc.

This is consistent with whites becoming less than 50% of the US population by 2042 and 30% by 2060 (down from 90% in 1960).
2060: Hispanics 50%.

Then there are people who bring children into this world all the while knowing that they don't have the money to properly care for them. In those cases, it ends up being the taxpayers who pick up the tab for that.

Besides, what's wrong with being "rather low in the reproduction department"? We don't have unlimited potable water or buildable land.

At one time you libs were all about ZPG. Now you all have done a 180 and are encouraging who don't have the resources to go ahead and bring children into the world. Why would anyone cheer on such irresponsible people when it comes to reproduction?
