Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 128 Stack Exchange communities.

I'm curious about the people using stackoverflow, specifically age range. Is there anywhere to get details on the statistics about the users? Is that sort of information included in the database dump?

Public statistics are available for stackoverflow, which show age ranges, gender, etc

You could also get the age details from the Users table in data dump, although I do not think the ages are accurate.

Is that based on the data in each user's account tab or on something more generic? –  Jason Jul 19 '09 at 14:06
I don't think so, you would have to ask the SO team. quantcast.com/docs/display/info/FAQ –  stukelly Jul 19 '09 at 14:19
The ages are from the user profiles. They're as accurate as you can expect from online forms. –  Ian Elliott Jul 19 '09 at 14:33
Thanks...that was what I was looking for –  Jason Jul 19 '09 at 14:36
I'm suspicious of the Quantcast data. I know that personally I haven't provided them most of the data they claim to know about me. –  Kyle Cronin Jul 19 '09 at 14:37
