Baby Boomer Boomtowns

World War II separated young men and women in sufficient enough numbers that population growth slowed to a crawl during the conflict and exploded once hostilities ceased and lovers reunited. The population surge that resulted became the Baby Boom, and those born through 1964 were Baby Boomers.

That generation, estimated at over 76 million, populated college campuses in the late Sixties, entered the workforce in the Seventies and Eighties, and is now reaching retirement across the country.

RealtyTrac has released a report on the percentage of Baby Boomers in U.S. Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs). Not surprisingly, the numbers show that Baby Boomers are adopting the senior state of Florida. Here, based on Census Bureau data from the American Community Survey, are America’s 25 Most Boomer-Dense MSAs as of 2013.
