100 Predictions for the Baby Boom: The Next 50 Years

By Cheryl Russell | Go to book overview

CHAPTER 7
THE NEW OLD

If midlife is the age at which people have lived half their lives, then the baby boom is there. For men, midlife is age 37, when they have an equal number of years of life remaining. For women, midlife is age 40, when they have 40 years of life left. The middle age of the baby boom will stretch for nearly three decades. By 2011, the first baby boomers will turn 65. Then the generation will find out what it's like to be old.

The older people get, the older "old age" becomes. Old age starts at age 63, say people in their 20s. People in their 40s say that old age starts at 70. For the elderly (people aged 65 and older), old age starts at age 75. 1
