The city of London has a users density of roughly 840* users per square mile (263.8k users* over a 10 miles radius). Overall, there are 1.9 men to every woman, with 65.2% of the users being males and 34.8% being females.
The average user is 28 years and 6 months old, and uploaded 4.4 pictures on his/her profile. Men (28 years and 7 months) are older than women (28 years and 3 months) and tend to show fewer pictures (4.3) compared to them (4.6).
The predominant age group is 18-25, which accounts for 40.7% of the total number of users, followed by the age group 26-33 with 38.8%. The remaining age groups (34-41 / 42-49 and 50+) make up for a mere 20.5% of the user base.
Paying users account for an estimated** 5.9% of the total, with men (7.8%) sharply outnumbering women (1.2%).

Gender data shows that 62.3 % of women have written something in their bio, with 53.1% and 15.5% of them publicly displaying their school and job; a further 16.1% had Instagram connected as well.
On the other hand males wrote something in their bio in 69.6% of cases, while 52.1% and 18.4% shared education and profession information on their profile. Male users with Instagram connected were 17.8%.
The most common women’s name is Sarah, followed by Laura and Emma. James tops the chart for men’s names, with Tom coming in second and Alex closing the top three.

A superficial analysis of the data showed that a woman in her early 20’s attracts*** roughly 63.8% of the male users in the city. By comparison, a woman in her mid 20’s attracts 65.8% of the males, while a woman in her early 30’s and mid 30’s attract 67.4% and 51.8% of men respectively. As far as the men are concerned, being too young doesn’t seem to help, since a man in his early 20’s will only attract 17% of the available women, while males in their mid 20’s and early 30s will rake in 45.6% and 62.3% of the female users; men in their mid 30’s attract 48.2 of the users of the opposite sex.

GENERAL NOTE: Users referred to in this survey are not the total number of active users in the area, but rather a subset of them with an age filter with a minimum age lower than 51 and a filter age difference (max-min) greater than 3.

* Users active in the last 7 days surveyed during a day in Early August
** After a week of inactivity, users are automatically taken out of the deck.
*** Some paying users are inferred indirectly while others are estimated. The percentage shown is very likely the minimum number of paying users present in the city during the survey.
**** Attraction is calculated based on the subset examined, see general note. 100% occurrences mean no one of those surveyed in that age group had an age filter excluding (lower than) the reference group.
