Our Future, Together by Graphicacy, The Center for American Progress

Just as explorers use a compass and architects a blueprint, demographers use pyramid charts to read the tea leaves: What groups are aging  or booming with youth  , and what do these shapes tell us about the changing American workforce? Baby Boomers, the largest generation of Americans, will continue to retire in unprecedented numbers, and today, one in four young people are from immigrant families. By 2030, immigrants and their children will play a big part in reshaping our workforce and filling the roles left by the Boomers.
