Much was made of the supposedly low turn out of the younger generation in the Brexit vote. An opt reported sentiment was, if they cared that much they should have voted.

Well it turns that they did. The initial stats reported by Sky Data was based on an anlysis of the data for last year's general election. It would have been nice if that had been made clear at the time :(

A more accurate analysis of data relating to this referendum has found that:

In fact, turnout was 64% among 18-24 year olds and 65% among 25-39 year olds, which is closer to the population average than could have been expected. Some 71% of people aged 18-24 voted to remain in the EU, and 62% of 25-39 year olds.

Perhaps the youth of today could sue Sky Data for mis-representation :)
