Age Distribution Data

Overall Age Distribution

overall age distribution december 2018

 The overall age distribution throws up some interesting observations:
There are two distinct distributions, based around Young Juveniles and Masters Athletes, with older Juveniles and Seniors literally nowhere to be seen. 

The drop off of Juveniles has been noted across many sports in Ireland, and is worrying from a number of perspectives, not just athletics membership. In particular the non-participation of juveniles, along with the related and alarming growth in obesity, among juveniles and younger adults, is almost certainly going to lead to a significant rise in general population health issues in the coming years.

From an athletics perspective, the low numbers between 18 and 35 is of particular concern, as this is the group from which our Championship, International and Olympic hopes will emerge.  Historically, Cork has 'punched above its weight' in producing European, World and Olympic Champions and medalists, along with many, many International athletes.  To continue this proud and valued heritage, we really need to be attracting, and retaining, more people in this age range.

 

Overall Male-Female Age Distribution

male female age distribution december 2018

 As with the overall age distribution, there are two separate distributions, and possibly three, when it comes to Male-Female registration ratios. In the Juvenile range, boys marginally outnumber Girls in all ages. However, moving into the adult ranges, that trend is significantly reversed, with a few exceptions, with Women outnumbering Men.  In another twist, once 55 is passed, Men outnumber Women. This is possibly a legacy from earlier times, say 25 to 30 years ago, when very few women took part at adult level.

 Juvenile Age Distribution

juvenile age distribution december 2018

Boys slightly outnumber Girls at virtually all ages, particularly at the younger end of the scale.  In a welcome movement, Girls reverse that somewhat, between 12 and 17, though numbers are small.

 

Senior Age Distribution

senior athletes age distribution december 2018
Throughout all the senior athlete ages, from 19 through to 34, participation numbers remain disappointingly low, with, for almost all ages, both Male and Female athlete figures struggle, and in most cases, fail, to pass even the low threshold of 20....for the entire county!

Masters Age Distribution 35 - 64

age distribution masters 35 to 64 december 2018

In a continuing reversal of the trends of 25 to 30 years ago, Women outnumber Men, by a wide margin, in almost every age group, until 55. Conjecture might suggest that, as appears to be the case, Irish women are more proactive about their health, more are active in athletics for, among other reasons, to maintain and look after their health...and more power to them!

 

Masters Age Distribution 65+

age distribution masters over 65 december 2018
As one might expect, age distribution becomes pretty sparse after age 65.

One noteworthy anomaly is a woman aged 119, who was born on April 1st 1900...actually she's currently compering in the F45 category!
