192.com reveals the true age of the nation

January 17, 2008

Leading people finder first to add age guide data and Electoral Roll 2008 to its site

192.com today announces that it is the first directory to add age guide data to its 2008 Electoral Roll listings. This new and exclusive feature makes it even easier to find old friends because even though a person's address may change their date of birth always stays the same.

Age guide data allows users to filter out people with the same name, but who are not in the right age bracket, when trying to find someone.

The age guide data – in twelve, five year bands from 17 to 65 plus – has been added initially to the site's 27 million current Electoral Roll records. Age guides are not based on the actual date of birth of individuals. They are modeled on data from a broad sample of the population using complex mathematical algorithms.

192.com offers customers access to over 630 million searchable records, including electoral rolls, company director reports and birth, marriage and death records. Today's announcement coincides with 192.com's launch of the 2008 Electoral Roll, making it the first site to publish this annual snapshot of the population.

192.com has also added Length of Occupancy to its current Electoral Roll listings, letting users know how long an individual has lived at a particular address.

Alastair Crawford, CEO, 192.com, comments, "This improvement makes finding people even easier and means 192.com retains its lead as the UK's number one people finder. Because 192.com uses the official Electoral Roll, you don't need to have a profile on a social networking site to be found – making 192.com a much more comprehensive people finder and great for all generations. We're hoping this improvement will help reunite thousands more friends and family."
