Welcome to a site all about you. During the baby boomer years, 1946-1964 (inclusive), 75.8 million Americans were born. The ratio of males to females has stayed relatively constant. There were approximately 1.05 male births for every one female birth. … Boomers today represent 28% of the U.S. population.
Baby Boomers make up about 26 percent of the population, but Glen Kessler writing in the Washington post says:
“There were 76 million people born between the years 1946 and 1964, the traditional window for the baby boom generation. That means that they will retire over a 19-year period. Simple math shows that 76 divided by 19 is 4 million, or almost 11,000 people a day.
While a certain percentage will die before they reach retirement age, analysts say that immigrants will actually boost the number of potential baby-boomer retirees to nearly 80 million —and not everyone retires exactly at 65 or 66. Some baby boomers likely retired at 62. So let’s say it’s 80 million over 20 years—which still yields 4 million a year.”
And while the Baby Boomer generation is about still about half male and half female, women are slowly gaining as the generation ages. In 2006, there were approximately 96 male Baby Boomers for every 100 female Baby Boomers.
So this site is for those guys. Capiche?
