Snapshot of Today's Baby Boomers

U.S. Census data reveals that even today, a large segment of the U.S. population is comprised of baby boomers -- and their numbers are predicted to dominate population data in the years to come. For example, in 2030, Census data indicates that 57,793,195 U.S. citizens will be part of the boomer demographic. As I've blogged about before, baby boomers are staying active, later in life, with a high percentage of boomers still working. For instance, as per 2006 numbers, the percentage of those unemployed baby boomers was at a surprisingly low 3.3 percent and those employed had reached 74.1 percent. Out of the surveyed, only 22.4 percent reported being out of the labor force. Click here to read more on the seniors for living website.
