How Old Is Too Old?



A new survey shows that the average Briton believes youth ends at 36 and old age starts at 58. The findings come from the European Social Survey, which took part in 21 countries.

In general, men regarded the end of youth and start of old age to begin two years earlier than women did. There were also large differences between countries: youth was perceived to end earliest in Nordic countries, such as Norway (34) compared to countries like Cyprus, where the average perception is that you stop being young at 52 and start being old at 67.
