Did you know … there are 108.7 million folks age 50-plus? This includes 76.4 million boomers (born 1946-64), compared with 49 million Gen Xers and 82 million millennials.
Research staff at AARP can rattle off facts about folks 50 years and older like we’re mini-Wikipedias. Although that makes us great at cocktail parties, we recently realized that we take some of this knowledge for granted, and that others might like to have quick access to the basic demographic and behavioral data that are often rattling around in our heads. To that end, we’ve started putting together a series of basic fact sheets around Americans age 50 and older. Here are our top 10 facts from the first two topics we’re covering: demographics and interests.
And these are just the highlights of two fact sheets in a seven-part series. You’ll have to stay tuned to see what’s next and check out the fact sheets below:
