Please seat all the young democrat Jews in my section!

A new media study among 1,629 Americans revealed a significant relationship between tipping and age, with older people tipping less for both good restaurant service and bad service.
The study was conducted during April 23-26 by HCD Research using its MediaCurves.com® website, to obtain information on Americans’ tipping habits when dinning in restaurants.

When restaurant service is good, respondents 40 years-old and younger reported that they leave an average tip of 19.5% of the total bill, compared to respondents over 40 years-old who reported leaving 18.0% of the total bill. When restaurant service is bad, respondents 40 years-old or younger reported leaving an average tip of 10.1% of the total bill, compared to respondents over 40 years-old who reported leaving 8.6% of the total bill.

A significant relationship was also revealed when comparing the tips left by infrequent and frequent attendees of worship services. When restaurant service is good, frequent worshipers reported that they leave an average tip of 19.3% of the total bill, compared to infrequent worshipers who reported leaving 18.3% of the check. When restaurant service is bad, frequent worshipers reported that they leave an average tip of 10.0% of the total bill compared to infrequent worshipers who reported leaving 9.0% of the check.
