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.
Marketplace is on a mission.
We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.
Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
