Baby Boomers Approach Age 60: From the Age of Aquarius to the Age of Responsibility

Changing demographics within families have prolonged the "sandwich phase," leaving many baby boomers supporting aging parents and supporting young children, according to a recent survey from the Pew Research Center. Baby Boomers Approach Age 60: From the Age of Aquarius to the Age of Responsibility (44 pages, PDF) examines multi-generational relationships within families and differing perspectives among older (ages 51-59) and younger (ages 41-50) boomers, and finds a majority are satisfied with their family life and cautiously optimistic about their finances in retirement.
