London: The exact age at which people should stop calling themselves young is 40 years, eight months and two weeks, according to a government poll in the UK. While men believe being young stops at 38 and a half, women are in no hurry to age as the cut-off for them is delayed until 42 years, nine months and three months, the poll found. Britons surveyed also said that old age begins when people reach the age of 59 years, two months and two weeks.The poll, for the Department for Work and Pensions, spoke to 2,171 people aged 16 or over and uncovered stark variations in the views of men and women and different age groups. Old age, according to women, begins at 60 years, four months and two weeks, but for men, it is much earlier at 58.
