Baby Boomers Now In Second Place 

Baby boomers aren’t so big anymore. We used to be the largest living generation in the United States. Now we have been overtaken by the millennials. 

Ouch that hurts. Baby boomers loved being the biggest group.

The Washington Post was among the first to  report the news from Pew Research Center. 

Millennials are the 18 to 34 year olds. There  are now 75.4 million living millennials, a half-million more than the 74.9 million living baby boomers, anyone who is 51 to 69 years old.

The report also said that millennials will peak in 2036 with 81.1 million people. The baby boomer generation peaked in 1999 with 78.8 million living members.
