baby boom at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

Generation born in the U.S. between 1946 and 1964. The hardships and uncertainties of the Great Depression and World War II led many unmarried couples to delay marriage and many married couples to delay having children. The war's end, followed by a sustained period of economic prosperity (the 1950s and early 1960s), led to a surge in population. The sheer size of the baby-boom generation (76 million) has magnified its impact on society: when "boomers" were young, the youth culture they defined took center stage; as they age, their consumer patterns dominate the market; and as they begin to retire, their needs are expected to strain public resources.
