The most noticable feature in the graph is “al gore’s global warming hockey stick at the end of the graph” The number of voters aged 112 is about the same as the number at age 93. If you follow the graph, the number of voters declines with age until you get to 112 and then you get a “hockey stick” formation where the number jumps up
A prelude to election night:
I wonder if the apparent “hockey stick” is just an artifact of a database that cannot handle birth dates prior to 1900?
I’m still highly suspicious. Standard mortality tables expect about one person in 100,000 to live to be 112 (or older). There were not 58,300,000 North Carolinian babies in 1900 and I do not for one minute believe the deficiency was made up by an inrush of retires. Some further Wikipedia research indicates that there are only 4,400 Americans over the age of 100, and only one in 1000 centenarians lives to be 110. The number of people over the age of 112 in North Carolina (population 9,600,000) cannot exceed 10, at the most. In point of fact the “expected” number of North Carolinians aged 110 would be about 0.14, or only about one chance in seven of even one such individual.
