America's Demography in the New Century: Aging Baby Boomers and New Immigrants as Major Players

Released on March 8, 2000, this 62-page report from the Milken Institute considers the changing landscape of the demographics of the United States. More specifically, the report focuses on the growing number of seniors and new immigrants and their impact on "the economic and political landscape." The report is divided into three chapters. The first, "Reaching the 'Tail of the Python,'" examines the effects of the aging Baby Boomer population, 76 million of whom will become seniors. "Immigration and 'Multiple Melting Pots'" views the changing demographics in terms of the concentration of immigrants in certain metropolitan areas, as well as California and the West as a case study. Finally, the last chapter looks at both of these demographics in terms of politics, economics, and marketing. The report includes color maps, charts, and graphs, along with a sidebar of statistics and facts.
