If you have the dates in A1:A155 then this will give you the average age on
today's date

=TODAY()-AVERAGE(A1:A155)

Suppose the birthdates are in A1:A155. The average birthdate is simply

=AVERAGE(A1:A155)

The average age (in days) is

=TODAY()-AVERAGE(A1:A155)

A reasonable proxy for average age in years is

=(TODAY()-AVERAGE(A1:A155))/365.25

Hi Greg
Say you have date of Birth : 1-Jan-60 in cell A1,:
=DATEDIF(A1,TODAY(),"y") result 49
=DATEDIF(A1,TODAY(),"m") result 588 (months) and you could have it in days
if you like. you need to use a column and drag down one of these formula,
then use Average(range)

Another option if you want the average age in whole years is
=DATEDIF(AVERAGE(A1:A155),TODAY(),"y")

Default Average of dates of birth

In excel, the age can be computer by subtracting the birth date of a person
from today’s date. Note that
NOW() function returns current date and time
AVERAGE() function yields the average
So you should follow following steps to obtain the result:-
1.In any column A enter name and in B, enter the date of birth (suppose you
have entered records from B1 to B20)
2.Select any other cell (say C1)
3.Enter following formula
=NOW()-AVERAGE(B1:B20)

Now you are done !

Have a nice time………
