To my way of thinking, Raines, a more useful demographic statistic would have been that same list of ages listed in straight ascending or descending order. Or a grouping that shows as an example how many under 10, 11-19, then twenties, thirties, etc. With a mean of 40 you could be describing a group where every member was between 35 and 45. With a straight list or a grouping as I've suggested, you can get an idea of what the community looks and feels like in terms of age diversity.

so, with a little number-crunching (and removing two 20-something kids who have grown up in the community but moved offsite yet still come back to do laundry and/or visit and eat the occasional meal so they're still on the birthday list), we can conclude that for the residential population at large (excluding two nonparticipating room-renting housemates who didn't make this list): n = 27 mean 40.5 median 46.5 standard deviation 22.0 If we look at just adults (and, coincidentally, all unit legal owners plus our associate member who lives nextdoor): mean 51.5 median 50 min 36 (n = 3) max 75
