The Geek Annual User POLL 2013: Results & Analysis

Specifically

Quote:
nearly 4400 users


Quote:
Age
The biggest group of us (39.3%) are in the 26-35 age range and 75% are 26-45. These numbers are slightly lower than in 2011.

About 0.5% are 18 or younger
6.5% are 25 or younger (9% 2011, 11% 2010)
18.5% are 46 or older (15.5% 2011, 13% 2010)
Just under 3% are 56+ (3% in 2011) - though there are probably more gamers of that age who don't frequent The Geek and polls.

The data you get here is going to be about the subset of gamers that use Internet forums. I suspect that's going to skew the results from the larger population of all gamers.

That has been a concern I am worried about. I'm hoping to get some additional data from contacting stores and meetup groups as well as the local populace in my area to hopefully even it out.

It's worse than that. For example, it shows half of one percent are under 18 which one would think would be a natural consequence of having to declare that you are 18 or older to open an account.

There's never been a scientific poll on BGG; it's all smoke and mirrors for the pleasure of those who like seeing numbers and don't concern themselves with whether or not those numbers are valid.
