What is this study design?

Help me design my research project: I'm collecting numerical data on a group of people compared to age-matched averages. Eg, I have a group of left-handed people and I want to know if their blood pressure differs from the average age-matched blood pressure. I don't have a control group, just data on blood pressure. What study design is this? Hint: it's not case control. I'm stuck.
