Title: The Echo Boom


1
The Echo Boom
2
The Echo Effect
The Echo Boom is the demographic phase in which
a population increase is created as people born
during the post-World War II baby boom have their
own children
It is called an echo Each generation will
create an echo of itself,as we will explore
further
3
  • The Echo Boom generation has many names,
    including
  • Generation Y this was the group of children
    born between 1980 and 1995 to parents who were
    born during the Baby Boom
  • The group at the base is referred to as
    Generation Z or Millennium kids they are the
    demographic group born after the mid-1990s
    (typically the children of the twentysomethings)

Why does it happen in some places?
Regional Differences of the Echo Boom
  • Since there are variations in birth and
    immigration patterns not every province will have
    the same population trends
  • The territories and Saskatchewan have high Echo
    Boom populations which reflects the large
    Aboriginal populations
  • Ontario also has high Echo Boom population
    because of high birthrates and specifically
    immigration
  • In the Atlantic provinces, because they have not
    attracted young immigrants and many people have
    been leaving because of lack of employment, they
    do not have another bulge in their populations

5
The Echo... By the Numbers
  • Many needs have to met while dealing with the
    Echo Boom
  • In Ontario, there is a predicted increase of
    80,000 university students by the year 2010
    which was also brought on by the double cohort
  • Within the coming years, every university needs
    to expand their facilities to accommodate all
    students
  • In order for a generation to replenish itself
    each couple must have two children
  • The number of children born to women in 1960 was
    3.5 children, the number of children dropped down
    to 1.5 in 1980

6
The Impact
  • Since the Echo Boom generation is fairly large
    there have been some strains that they have
    caused
  • Can you name a strain and a sign of this strain?
  • Schooling many Echo Boom kids benefited from
    attending brand new schools
  • BUT
  • This also caused a strain because schools were
    not large enough and many have to deal with
    portables and crowded classrooms
  • The Echo Boomers will have an advantage in the
    work force since they will be entering the job
    market as the Baby Boomers begin to retire
  • The Echo Boomers also have buying power as many
    have part time jobs and also six pockets
    receiving money from two parents and four
    grandparents

7
  • Echo Boomers have more money to spend than
    previous generations
  • Evidence of this, can be seen through
  • The strong shift of radio and television
    programming to youth markets
  • More than ever before, youth are being marketed
    electronics, music and video (iPODS!),
    convenience food, clothing, live entertainment,
    games (computer or video), etc

Increasingly the Echo Boom generation is linked
with violence, self-centered behaviour, an all
me attitude, laziness, and have been given the
label of the obnoxious teenager.
How do you see your generation?
