Deaths from baby boomers will peak in 2044 & # 39; when the women of the generation will be 90 and the men 88, new research has shown. Baby Boomers, who preceded Generation X, were born between 1946 and 1964, which means that they have had free university education and retired with a healthy pension. This year, 1,641 men and 1,258 women are expected to be born in 1946, according to The Times. Data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) also suggests that 29,471 baby boomers are likely to die in 2019, with the number increasing until it reaches a peak in 2044 .

This number creeps up to 58,759 in 2029 and 104,443 in 2039 before it reaches its peak in 25 years. For people of this age group, men are expected to live until they are 88 and women until their 90th. The baby boom has experienced two peaks. The first took place after soldiers returned from the war in 1947 and the second was in 1964, when 875,972 babies were born. However, there was a decrease in the birth rate after passing the abortion law. There was also a peak in the birth rate after the First World War, where births reached almost a million in 1920. Baby Boomers experienced a boom in the housing market and many were able to buy their own home, something their grandchildren will never achieve.

Lawrence Bowles, of Savills, the real estate firm, told The Times developers retirement homes at an accelerating pace. built. But he said it was quiet: & # 39; A long way from [what is needed] to meet demographic needs and chunks [of retirees] that is coming. Ian Mulheirn, of Oxford Economics, a consulting firm, said he did not believe Boomers would move to an old people's home to increase the number of homes on the market for new buyers. He said: "[Their children will] have to wait until interest rates rise worldwide and, [then] high house prices will not be sustainable. & # 39;
