I just posted this dilemma on Facebook, but it should also go here:

So Wolfram Alpha tells me that in Canada: "31.72 million people (88.47% of 
population) (world rank: 22nd) (2015 estimate)" are on the internet in 
2015. And I blindly copy it. But then I wonder does include infants, 
toddlers, etc? I need age-group data! And can I even trust this 88.47% as 
a pop. estimate?
