I'm sure there have been more recent polls of the Daily Kos community than those listed in the DKos Demographicspage***, but I can't for the life of me find them (search tips welcome, if you have better luck).  

So come on by and click the appropriate box.  Today's poll: Age.  Tomorrow I'll move on to gender/orientation/marital status, then income, ethnicity, etc., following the categories that have been polled for previously.

***NOTE: If you follow the link above to the dKosopedia page and check out the earlier polls from 2004 and 2005, please follow the suggestions to NOT vote in those polls.  Preserve them for historical analysis.  Has the Daily Kos trended younger or older since '04?  Are we spreading into new regions of the country?  Etc.

I will also update the dKosopedia with links to these diaries, afterward.  

Apologies if anyone dislikes the categories or age ranges I use in these polls, but for the sake of maintaining comparative data sets, I am copying the ones used in 2004/05 by JMS and pHunbalanced.

Thanks everyone, for my first trip to the rec list!

Thanks also for voting -- we've now surpassed the last age poll by over 100 votes and still counting.

Update:  For more information about the demographics of Daily Kos, check out this diary by DrSteveB.  Kudos to kck for the reference!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
