The Baby Boom generation, the population cohort born between 1946 and 1964, is headed for South Florida. Boomers made up about 23 percent of Florida’s 15.9 million residents in 2000, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, which predicts that by 2010, they will account for 27 percent of the 19.6 million people living there. Real estate agents say they are already fielding more calls this summer from Boomers from northern latitudes.
