About This Quiz

Think you know all about Baby Boomers? Prove it!

"Baby Boomers" is the name given to the generation that was born at the end of World War II. As soldiers came home from the war, they settled down, bought houses and started families. Baby boomers are those born between 1946 and 1964 (although some sources list the first Boomer year as 1943). Currently, Baby Boomers are rivaled in number by millennials, with both generations in the United States boasting current numbers of at least 70 million.

Not to be left out, other regions cataloged their own Baby Boom. Australia, Canada, Europe and Asia recorded births in record numbers. This generation experienced benefits that previous generations didn't.

Baby Boomers were the richest, healthiest and highest educated generation to date. More Boomers in the United States graduated high school than previous generations, and many went to college on the G.I. Bill. G.I. benefits also enabled boomers to realize the American dream of home ownership in record numbers. And rising incomes enabled them to experience what some describe as the first economic excess as a generation.
