Abstract : An examination of post-World War II events, this report distills a specific scenario of how demographic and economic phenomena may evolve over the next several decades. The authors focus on birth-rates, population redistribution, documented and undocumented immigration, wages and unemployment, women's labor market participation, and retirement ages. The changes likely to occur in these areas will present private and public decisionmakers in the United States with important challenges. The authors discuss these challenges for education, health care, Social Security, and military preparedness.
