If you could choose your age, what would it be?

The answers to a poll of more than 2,000 people came up with answers that you would probably not have expected.

Men and women from all over the country were given the chance to choose the age they would prefer to this question:  “If you could live forever in good health at a particular age, what age would you like to be?” I would have expected the answers to remain close to the younger side of life, but it fooled me. As it turns out the average answer: 50 years-old! Shocker, huh?.

Here is how the numbers broke down according to the demographics:

Let’s break the numbers down:

  • those between 18 and 36 said the ideal age is 38
  • those between 37 and 48 said the ideal age is 49
  • those between 49 and 67 said the ideal age is 55
  • those ages 68 and older said the ideal age is 67

In the battle of the sexes, men claimed the perfect age to be 47, while women preferred 53.

Having children in the house did affect the age choices. If they had kids the average age picked was 45. Those without kids chose 53.
