How are the different age groups defined?

When creating a dashboard, you can filter based on specific age groups: infants, children, teens, adults, or elderly. The age groups are defined by the following ages/grades:
 
Children: <18, <11 or K - 7th grade
Infants: <1
Teens: 12-17 or 7th-12th grade
Adults: 18+
Elderly: 65+
 
Please note: If an indicator measures all children under 18, the indicator is classified as children and not teen or infant.  Teen and infant are used only if the indicator measures that specific sub-group of children. Similarly, if an indicator measures all adults over 18, the indicator is classified as adults even if it include adults over 65 as well.  Indicators are only classified as elderly if they only measure adults over 65. If an indicator measures the entire population, no age group classification is assigned.  Please refer to the indicator definition for information on the exact population described.
