I'd say late twenties, early thirties. I feel generally old here
I would say somewhere in the thirties....
I feel a little young here, but thats all good...
My Guess: Early to mid thirties.
It's a shame you can't use the poll capsule in forums.
I'd say 35 to 45, mainly because I know that there's quite a few more senior hubbers, and an average is an average.
Maybe Team HP could do an anonymous survey. It's a good question. I think the average age might be higher than the average for sites like twitter, facebook, and myspace, and higher than we imagine here.
My guess is from nothing other than the impression I'm under, but I think I've seen a lot of people in their forties on here. It seems to me as if there are more early-twenties showing up recently.
Nope not necessarily-- I'm older than Ghost. :-)
I've seen more than a few people older than you, two, so - who knows - you and Ghost may actually be more average than you'd guess.
Oh heck-- I was hoping to be above average in something.... and then someone mentioned that God was here. I suppose that would make all averages irrelevant.
Maybe we need to revise the question to "human mortal ages"... but then what about reincarnation??
The Artist formerly known as God is ageless. How does that affect the average?
depends on the forum. over in religion it's a safe bet to say pre-teen is the average.
Rochelle, in order to figure out how to make you above average we first need to figure out what's average - and from there I'm sure someone could mess with some figures, specify that ages must be human/Earth years, and maybe even place you in the "above average" department. Of course (no disrespect intended to God, by any means); but we need to know if Jack Frost, Santa Claus, Father Time or Larry King are on here (because if they are that would need to be addressed too. ) (Just a note: I'm not very far behind you in the age department, which is why I didn't think the references to ages-old "beings" would be offensive.)
this is a third question in the row. May I ask you all to fill in my age survey hub and I can help answering this question as much statistical accuracy.
For FAQs, and questions from other hubbers, I am brining my forum response live
like an average is in a median or average as in a combined age of all hubbers divided by the number of hubbers?
Well I will just guess... 38
Does it matter?
Maybe it does.
The minimum age for participants here is supposed to be 18-- though I have seen some great comments and contribution from many who have identified themselves as younger.
I would guess the average as about 40, maybe more. I know there a lot of 20 and 30 somethings, but there are a few of us who really pull up on the average.
I wrote a hub about being 50 when I was a sub teacher in a blind class. For some reason they thought they could guess my age and missed it by only -15 years.
This would not have happened if they could have seen me, but I was sitting on the floor with them sharing silly riddles. This may have influenced their literal perception. So how old was I , really?
50 is the new 40 - no, the new 35. So that sounds about right.
How awesome, Lisa, that will make my 55 a super duper 37.5...I can live with that... the only problem, if I'm 37.5 how do I explain my 35 year old son, my 31 and 19 year old daughters??????
hmmmmmm I got's-to put some thoughts into that one.
That's the beauty of it - you don't have to explain any of the figures! In not all that many years my son will be passing my "36" (which doesn't translate exactly to my unmentionable age, but it's close). He and I have laughed about it, know it will happen one day, and apparently have decided it's how aging works sometimes. (This method of calculating age is a little less evil that just lying about age. It's "re-figuring" - which is a-whole-nother thing. )
Thank you so much marissa posting the link.
Statistically I got 17 people on vote so far, not a big sample.
the median age for 17 hubbers is 42, i.e. about 8 hubbers are 42 or less and 9 are more than 42, assuming data is true
Weighted average is 45.
the variation in the median estaimtes can be +/- 3 years based upon the class sample.
They all are very different... But in average I guess about 35-40...
I don't know exactly, but I think it should be about 30 years old.
P.S. Though statistics in Marisa's hub shows another picture.
i actually think a lot of us are a lot older than we wish we were. However when on hub pages, because we are accepted by everyone, it relaxes us, we become as youth with all the experience.... i am 21 on here, 52 away from here help..... i have 7 grandchildren.... in my head though i am in my 30's...... does it matter what age we are.... does it really matter....... not on line anyway.... there you have my views.... did you realise i was an old woman... my grandson beside me is 12.... he thinks i am ancient... ha ha
I would say the average age of those who have been around for a while on hubpages is greater than the average newcomer. It seems patience is a trait lacking in many of the younger hubbers and there must be a significant drop out rate.
you have to be mature to understand just what hub pages has to offer in my opinion..... the young ones will probably be back......... maybe when they are older, and we are dead and buried...... xxxxx
God! Can't believe people take this place so seriously! Not to offend hubpages because they're actually great, but seriously, this should be a fun place to post blogs. A person shouldn't have to worry if they're endangered of being thrown under the bus. I mean, seriously!
Actually, it's not a place to post blogs at all
well it is a fun place of course.... that is the thing about hub pages..... it can just be a fun place.... but for some it is their work......
If i was younger, it would not appeal to me on all the levels it does, but i would nip in and out of it every now and again. I do take hub pages far too seriously as it has been a life line for me through some horrible times.
Maybe when i don't need it soooo much that will be good for me and everyone else..... it is a fun place though it really is
LOL Then I have no idea what you are talking about - I am one of the most misbehaving people here
Thank you, but i know I am. I often challenge people core beliefs, either intentionally or not, and many people don't take this lightly
No, really, he is... total shi* disturber.
Yeah, Misha. You make me feel bad, deviant.
Actually, the second my kids go to bed I'm cussing like a truck driver. And, it feels GOOD.
LOL This adds some very nutty spicy tones to your lovely image.
Oh this post reminded me of chat days
Indian guys if soon as they could figure how to use voice went something like this..
allo..(pause) allo..(pause) allo..pause
as soon as they heard the first static noise coming from voice connecting it went from allo to:
you pretty lady ...(pause) allo..allo..pause
my sis and I ,spoke once and soon we had the whole village online, was hilarious, now I think its full of wierdo's, n wacko's creepy stuff.
Who wants to be averaged!!! You know what that means...I am as old as dirt! So does that make the average 40?
ok - adding the numbers presented here, adding ranges (each end point was added) estimating based on some responses...here are the counts for each age grouping (sorry if any response is left out). 36 is the average age of responses
Whoever responds after this has to re-add:)
25 - 35
28 - 45
30 - 35 (2)
35 - 40
35 - 45
I'm in my 30s, and I'm hoping to stay that way for a long time. Maybe if I use those rules I'll be 21.

I know there are several tests onlineand I've taken those.But there are test doctors give as wellIn my case I took that one.Either way, having taken both, my results are pretty much the same.My result is above (above average)- which is not above average but above that.I forget the exact term for...

Many people in the world today have abandoned any rigorous sense of rationality in favor of a life of il-logic. This is an opportunity for those who have not to share and comment upon their experiences with the chronically illogical.My sister took a job at a small diner that I frequented, and...

How old are you? I'm curious about the average age of Hubbers.At age 50, I'm curious about the average age of the writers on HubPages. Can HubPages and sites like it be a good way to supplement retirement incomes?

First, I want to apologize if you've heard this question a 1000 times before, but I'd be grateful if you could advise me from your experience.If I was to publish a large number of hubs across various topics, each targeting a well researched keyword/s, is it realistic to aim for an average daily...

I have over 60 hubs now and could have several hundred before year end. I have been using groups so far to handle the hubs I have, but would like to hear how others with hundreds of hubs manage them.Thank you.

For me to answer this would be too early but for all those who are here for a long time this is for you. Which of the hubbers here would you want to meet personally.
