Anyone has a rough estimate, or can point me to the right direction, of how many people in the US are retiring say in the next 10 years?
Hmm. Not sure, but according to this article, it was estimated to be 76 million in the next 10 years as of December 2006. http://www.forbes.com/2006/12/18/leadership-jobs-management-lead-careers-cx_tw_1218bizbasics.html
Thanks for the link walrus! I can’t imagine the number differring that much from the 76 million.
If you want to consider a retirement age you can just use census data on demographics - number of people age 60 will increase by xx% over next x amount of years.
What about the rough number of retirees now? from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_the_United_States#Age_structure it seems like people aged 65 and older is about 39.5 million.
Just found another site: http://factfinder.census.gov/servlet/STTable?_bm=y&-geo_id=01000US&-qr_name=ACS_2008_3YR_G00_S0101&-ds_name=ACS_2008_3YR_G00_&-redoLog=false People aged 65 and above is about 12.6%, so 39 million seems correct for the total number of retirees. For the number of people retiring in the next 10 years, they should be in the age group of 55-65, i.e. about 32.5 million? Sounds like a big differenec from the 76 million mentioned in the earlier link. What am I missing here
