US populations by age and distribution

I like this animated population graph from Calculated Risk. It is interesting to watch the boomer pig in the pipe moving along as well as the general increases in life span. What I find most interesting is the relatively slight increase in the far right tail going out to 2060. Not too many of us can expect to hit 95 let alone 100.

It illustrates how flat the distribution is following the boomer generation as well. Not like the changes in age distribution that other countries will experience.
