Hard to believe that almost 80% of the people born in my birth year are still alive. I feel better now.... I think....

Interesting to see that the birth rate continued to rise during WWII from pre-war numbers. I guess there were a lot more men classified 4-F's, or otherwise exempt than I thought. Not surprising to see a such a big increase in births after the end of the war.

My sister was born in 1946. The 8 years between us sure makes a difference.

That was the first year of the baby boom and many of us were killed in the explosion.

Strange that a higher percentage from 1955 are still alive than from 1956.For one thing, polio was still a thing in 1955.

Back then having 5 to 10 children was not unusual.

Farmers [who usually had large families] had deferments.

Nuke tests ??

" Operation Project 56 was a series of 4 nuclear tests conducted by the United States in 1955-1956 at the Nevada Test Site. "

I think I'm one of them, but sometimes I'm not sure.

2 out of 3 of your cohorts are still alive.

You are only special when down to 1 out of 10, or 1 out of 20.

It may be a bit lonely at the top, but that comes with winning.

Presume these numbers are for US births. I was born on a different continent, wonder what the numbers are for the rest of the world.
