A couple of years ago, the same poll was posted (sorry, cannot find it). Your poll suffers from the same problem of the other one -- the high end is missing a couple of decades.

Would of liked to see a further breakdown past 50....?

Is the big 50 some sort of cliff number all down hill from there?

I used to think that about 30.

Ok you can totally make this poll read 51-60 and 61-70 and 71-80 and 81-90 and then Over 90,
and that might be stretching it a bit but I am sure few retire near past 50.
