Usually working, affirm how old one is (2,7)


I believe the answer is:

on average

Here is my best explanation:

'usually' is the definition.

'working affirm how old one is' is the subsidiary indication.

'working' becomes 'on'.

'affirm' becomes 'aver' ('aver' can be a synonym of 'affirm').

'how old one is' becomes 'age'.


This clue was last seen in The Guardian

(Other definitions for on average that I've seen before include "typically speaking", "Usually", "Generally" and "Typically".)
