Gallup.com launched a series last year exploring the largest generation of Americans, those born from 1946 through 1964 -- the baby boomers. As this segment of the population continues to mature through middle age and considers retirement, we decided once again to look at how the "silver tsunami" will affect the workforce, the healthcare system and the world.
Visit Gallup.com this week for a variety of new topics illuminating the progress of baby boomers:
- Are baby boomers reluctant to retire?
- How engaged are baby boomers at work compared with other generations?
- How likely are boomers to be entrepreneurs, and what drives them to start a business?
- What are the spending trends of baby boomers?
- Are banks doing what they can to engage baby boomers?
- Will companies face a talent vacuum when boomers leave the workforce?
- Why are many baby boomers choosing to work part time?
- How are countries worldwide replacing a retiring population?
- Are boomers more likely to be liberal or conservative?
- Are baby boomers more likely than other generations to be diagnosed with depression?
Join us this week for this continued exploration of the baby boomer generation.
