IMDb Demographic Ratings — Age Groups

I have a suggestion about the demographic rating age groups. It would be more interesting for everyone if there was a couple more age groups.

Today it's four age groups: <18, 18-29, 30-44 & 45+. It would be more interesting with a small adjustment. My suggestion is to change it to six age groups, the following: <18, 18-29, 30-44, 45-59, 60-79 & 80+. That should make older people (45>) more interested in the demographic ratings statistics.

It's after all a big differens being 45 years old, or 65 years old, or 85 years old. Today they're all in the same age group. People are getting older and older and to be part of the "45+ group" must be rather uninteresting and quite boring if you like ratings and statistics. I'm not there yet myself, I'm part of the "30-44 group".

IMDb is also getting older and many members, such as myself, have
been members for a very long time, so I think the age groups need a small
update.

My suggestion again: <18, 18-29, 30-44, 45-59, 60-79 & 80+.

I think this small change is necessary and I hope you agree with me.

EDIT: To improve the distribution of votes demographically I think that 'year of birth' and 'gender' should be mandatory information to provide as a member. Personal privacy is very important, but that particular information feels very harmless to share.

@ACT_1  I've also noticed that. IMDb should at least know what year a member was born. As well as the members gender (if they want to be pc they can just add the alternative 'Other').

That's the important information; if a member want to share more personal information, like what country they live in, that shouldn't be a problem.

Even if they don't require that information I still think it's a good idea to update and expand the age groups.

Personal integrity is very important. But I don't think it matters if IMDb (or third parties) know members gender or what year a member was born.
