The baby boom generation is a result of the high birth rate upon finalisation of the second world war. Men would return home to thier wives and start to have families, therefore, 9 months later there would be what the world knows as the baby boom.

Aged between 1946 and 1964

estimated 78.3 million baby boomers in the US

The diagram above shows the rich vain in birth rate in the baby boom period. Figures have not been recorded as high since this 18 year timespan.

Analysing both European and American baby boomers research, its said that this generation is that are widely associated with privilege, this is because many grew up in a time of widespread government subsidies in post-war housing and education. As a result of the post-war lifestyle they led, they have been recorded as the healthiest and wealthiest generation to that time. This information being supported by present data, with current baby boomers having high disposable income and British boomers specifically held 80% of the UK's wealth and bought 80% of all top of the range cars.
