I think this is an interesting article. But I’m trying to figure out how are there more millennials and boomers when between 1946-1964 it was not uncommon for one family to have 5 to 8 children? I guess the Boomers was numerous that it didn’t take that many children per couple.
I think the Silent Generation is so small mainly because of the social, economic condition at the time of their birth. The Great Depression was bludgeoning the country.
Another thing I found interesting is that there are currently members of all these generations alive and well and in many families; living in the same household. (I didn’t forget generations Y and Z.) Thanks to the marvels of modern medicine many more families are seeing fifth and six generations. Many youngsters doesn’t have to dig out out faded photos to see great-great grandmother. All they have to do is walk into her room or see her at the dinner table.
