Baby Boom Report

In a report prepared by Del Webb Corp. about baby boomers (born between 1946 and 1960) many interesting statistics are shown.

First, baby boomers currently comprise about 28% of the American population. After the baby boomers is GenerationX (born between 1968 and 1979).

19% of the baby boomers surveyed said that parenting was harder than they expected it would be.

36% of baby boomers expect to move when their kids leave home.

This report states "The Baby Boomer Survey, conducted in April and May 2004, reveals Boomers are embracing the idea of Empty Nesting, the stage in life when children move out of their parent's home for good. While Boomers have an array of emotions about the situation, most look forward to getting back to what they were always accused of being - the "me generation."
