The story that I am analyzing is an article from the Pioneer Press about who will care for the elderly when the baby boomer generation becomes the elderly. The story uses numbers to make points about how elderly care faces a crisis when the baby boomer generation reaches the elderly ages. The story talks about the 78 million people that were born between 1946 and 1964, and how they are the ones caring for the elderly, but who will care for them. It also uses percentages to illustrate how senior population is increasing more rapidly than the number of likely caregivers. It also talks about how a percentage decline in caregivers could give the state more money to spend on seniors. It is not very clear on how that would work. The math could be better explained in this instance. However, for the most part the article uses numbers well to illustrate its point.
