I think the ease of teaching yourself coding correlates directly with your age when you learn it. A survey of my peers has shown:
Obviously that's not scientific -- I had about 70 data points total, and I didn't make any special efforts to eliminate bias -- but anecdotally, it is interesting.
Also anecdotally, I taught myself to code at a very young age (very slowly from 5-8, and then diving headlong into it at 8) and I don't remember it being hard -- at the time, I thought learning it was easier than learning my letters.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
