Abstract

Accounting for 14.6% of the national population, Korean baby boomers are, in terms of their socioeconomic backgrounds, a widely heterogeneous group. However, they have by and large been lumped together in most of contemporary policy discourse as "soon-to-be" senior citizens. To chart effective policy options that are responsive to the heterogeneity of baby boomers, it is necessary to come up with a clear picture of their different characteristics and needs. This study categorizes baby boomers into 8 types according to their "gender", "income", and "employment status". As a result, the 8 types of baby boomers are: male typeⅠ (5.7%), male typeⅡ (15.9%), male typeⅢ (1.4%), male typeⅣ (24.4%), female typeⅠ (14.3%), female type Ⅱ (10.4%), female typeⅢ (12.5%), and female typeⅣ (15.5%).
This study employs a combination of quantitative and qualitative approaches. On the quantitative side, this study analyzed a national survey conducted in 2010 by KIHASA on 3,027 baby boomers. (The rest omitted)
