I recently read an article in the Wall Street Journal about Millennials that I found interesting. One of several facts is that the millennial segment of our population (75.4 M) is larger than the Baby Boomer population (74.9 M).  While there seems to be some debate as to the exact date range Millennials were born it appears that individual’s age 24 – 27 fall into the category, and they’re peaking in their need for careers, and for homes.
