The median age is 35, slightly higher than the census estimate and exactly the same as Burning Man in 2012.
This is especially impressive, as Burning Man doesn’t have that many kids and young adults – they report just 1.4% of attendees are under 20. Youtopia is more than double that, at 3.6%, and 106 people under 18.
I had expected that older folks were more likely to fill out the census form, since it was primarily a daytime activity and involved actual pens and paper. As it turns out, people 22-28 were twice as likely to fill out the census as all other age groups. Yeah, I double checked. People in their 20s evidently love forms.
Finally, children under ten sucked at filling out the census, with a zero percent response rate. Pull it together kids! There is no excuse for being illiterate!
