stated age in source[edit]

Originally proposed at Wikidata:Property proposal/Person

   Not done
Descriptionqualifier for a reference that states the subject's age rather than the relevant year
Representsreference qualifier
Data typeNumber (not available yet)
Allowed values<120
Example 1Susanne Schilderman (Q83364897), member of D66  since the age of 16
Example 2Philip Overkleeft (Q83364872), Bio (probably written in 2015) states he's 42 years old
Example 3MISSING

Motivation[edit]

oftentimes I'm calculating what someone's birth year is based on a publication that mentions their age. To keep this clear I add quotation (P1683) that says "30 years old" in the reference. I came across stated age at event (P3629) and that gave me the idea that a property that could be a better way to get this across. Or would allowing P3629 as a qualifier in the reference a better idea. Not just in the date of birth reference could this property be used: Susanne Schilderman (Q83364897) became a party member at 16 for instance. 1Veertje (talk) 23:23, 21 January 2020 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

  • BA candidate.svg Weak oppose This muddles the distinction between data and the references. When it comes to the examples, I don't see how this property can be used to say "member since". ChristianKl❫ 16:32, 27 January 2020 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Using stated age at event (P3629) in references should be sufficient. --Tinker Bell 21:49, 29 January 2020 (UTC)
Tinker Bell its property scope (P5314) as a as qualifiers (Q54828449) makes that impossible. 1Veertje (talk) 17:28, 22 February 2020 (UTC)
