Population Trends and Incontinence

Does aging necessarily mean that you will be experiencing incontinence? Not at all! Statistically, Millennials and Baby Boomers are aging and have higher likelihood of experiencing bladder incontinence as they transition through from mid life to retirement age status.

According to Pew Research Center, 2015 is the year when “Millennials generation is projected to surpass the outsized Baby Boom generation as the nation’s largest living generation, according to the population projections released by the U.S. Census Bureau last month.

According to Factank, News in the Numbers, figures for the two groups are as follows,
The Millennial Generation – 75.3 million
Born 1981 to 1997,
Age of adults in 2015: 18 to 34

The Baby Boom Generation – 74.9 million
Born 1946 to 1964
Age in 2015: 51 to 69

The Gen X population – 55 million (ages 35 to 50 in 2015) is projected to outnumber the Boomers by 2028.
