If you could be any age, what would it be?

A new poll of more than 2,200 American adults finds a very surprising answer.

The survey’s respondents — a variety of men and woman of all ages in different parts of the country — were asked “If you could live forever in good health at a particular age, what age would you like to be?”

The average answer: 50.

That’s right — not a teenager, not a 20-something or a 30-year-old. Fifty.

Let’s break the numbers down:

  • those between 18 and 36 said the ideal age is 38
  • those between 37 and 48 said the ideal age is 49
  • those between 49 and 67 said the ideal age is 55
  • those ages 68 and older said the ideal age is 67

Men said the perfect age is 47, while women said 53.

People with kids in the house said 45, while those without children said 53.
