SO, WHAT IS A BABY BOOMER ANYWAY?
In short, a baby boomer is anyone born within the years of 1946 and 1964. When World War II ended in 1945, thousands of young men returned from service, got jobs, got married and started families. This resulted in a significant jump in the birth rate (more that 1 million more babies were born in 1946, compared to 1945) an this increased birth rate continued until 1964.
