We never really find out. Really after age 12, ages are not kept. People don't seem to care. I think it gives the Elders better control over how they manage their citizens. Age is really not considered an important part of one's identity.

"After Twelve, age isn't important. Most of us even lose track of how old we are as time passes, though information is in the Hall of Open Records."
