Statistics - improving age statistics sharing

Statistics - improving age statistics sharing

Short, concise description of the idea
Add "Unspecified" to the Age Distibution bar graph on the Stats page, with the number of unknown birth years.

Full description of the idea
Use the same reasoning behind showing the "Unspecified" Gender to show the number of "Unspecified" Age users -- raw number or percentage, whichever is easier.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Because many users don't give age, the Age Distribution graph gives incomplete information. Knowing how many users have opted out of Age, as is shown with Gender, will give a more accurate picture of the completeness of the stats.

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Should be fairly straightforward.

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • No idea. Again, should be fairly easy to do.
