ENWorld has about 32% of its readership in the 16 to 24 age group.
RPGNet has about 37% of its readership in the 16 to 24 age group.
The Tavern's Facebook Community comes in at 2.4% of its membership in the 16 to 24 age group.
The Swords & Wizardry Facebook Community comes in at 4.9% of its membership in the 16 to 24 age group.
