This final note today comes to us from the Bureau of the Census. They did a whole big data dump this week buried deep inside of which was this tidbit:

The most represented age in the American population, that is the biggest age group, is 22 year olds. The second largest group is 23 year olds, then followed by 21 year olds.

Then and only then in fourth place a baby boomer- a poor lonely 53 year old.

There are now more people in their 20's in this country, yes, millenials, than any other group.

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
