This is one of my favorite ways to display the Baby Boom!
Note that the chart shows 2003 data for population by age,
The third or fourth yellow bar from the top shows the number of people currently turning 65 in 2015
The bars continue to grow steadily, surpassing 2 MILLION males and females for a number of years (second vertical line from the right or left)
The numbers hover around 2 MILLION for years to come.
It is expected the top of the graph (those much older than 65) will continue to expand as the Baby Boom pushes ‘north of 65.’
