CommonCensus is a blog brought to you by NuWire Investor. CommonCensus takes a look at demographic trends and provides commentary and analysis on how they might affect investors and the economy.
Millions of baby boomers are set to retire in the coming years, for example. That will impact not only the job market but also real estate markets across the country, as many retirees will opt to downsize to smaller homes or move to sunnier locations.
Knowledge of demographic trends can benefit investors because such knowledge can translate into knowledge of markets.
