I was answering a question about rating percentage on Quora and wrote a script, which could be used on any Unix-based computer (like a Mac) or under Git bash in Windows. Thought it could help. The script is at https://gist.github.com/timothyha/1fb1e6aa4cd2d3dd6aa50068097923a7

Here are the results based on January 2018 data. I thought there would be more lower-rated people, but no, there are more on top!

0000-1199 23790
1200-1299 16400
1300-1399 18937
1400-1499 21544
1500-1599 25112
1600-1699 28726
1700-1799 30909
1800-1899 31314
1900-1999 29878
2000-2099 28058
