The purpose of this study is to explore and compare longitudinally the differences in labor market outcomes and economic well-being of the baby boom cohorts born between 1944 and 1953 and the experiences of age cohorts born between 1923 and 1937. In particular, the study is motivated by the possible impact of the ?period effects? of baby boomers entering the labor market at a time when wage growth slowed and when wage inequality increased, particularly among less skilled male workers. It explores the consequences these experiences may have on baby boomers? long-term economic prospects.
