Aging Boomers

NPR's Pam Fessler reports that the average age of Americans is older than it used to be. The 2000 Census shows the 45 to 54 year-old age bracket was the fastest-growing group during the 1990s. As Baby Boomers age, the trend is likely to continue. (4:35) Check out NPR News' comprehensive coverage of the 2000 census.
