The United States is experiencing major demographic trends such as the trend of aging baby boomers, maturing millennials, shifting migration patterns. There is a large variation across geographies in the magnitude and impact of these trends on consumer spending. Compared to other determinants of consumer spending, demographic trends are highly predictable and quantifiable, and yet, the consumer demand implications of the forthcoming demographic changes are not well-understood. We intend to close this gap in our understanding, with detailed projections of the impact of demographics on consumer demand, across categories and across states and metro areas in the United States.
In this webcast, we will explore the relation between demographics and consumption from various perspectives, and focus on the human capital implications of these trends.
