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


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)


  • 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)
