If you just want to bin the current ages:

> count=c(1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 7, 8, 8, 9, 9,

```+ 10, 11, 15, 17, 17, 17, 17, 19, 19, 19, 19, 20, 20, 20, 21, 21,
+ 21, 22, 22, 22, 22, 23, 23, 23, 23, 23, 24, 24, 25, 27, 31, 33
+ )

> age=c(3, 8, 9, 7, 56, 58, 10, 13, 53, 55, 11, 12, 14, 51, 54,
+ 15, 50, 52, 18, 49, 48, 47, 20, 16, 17, 25, 45, 29, 33, 36, 41,
```

> # create a vector with each age separately for its count
> bins <- rep(age, times=count)
> # setup the groups for the bins
> groups <- seq(0,100, 10) - 1
> tapply(bins, cut(bins, groups), length)
(-1,9] (9,19] (19,29] (29,39] (39,49] (49,59] (59,69] (69,79] (79,89] (89,99]

(-1,9] (9,19] (19,29] (29,39] (39,49] (49,59] (59,69] (69,79] (79,89] (89,99]
