Scouts-L Mail Archive for December of 1999: Ed's Charts
Thu, 16 Dec 1999 15:16:35 EST
The suggestion that the chart seems to follow the Baby-boom is correct. The
chart of Total Available Youth (TAY) would show that we just finished the
second baby boom. Yes that is correct. A second baby boom. The rate of
children mirrored the baby boom. So it is even more telling that scouting is
even reaching fewer and fewer youth as a historic precedent.
For the next, 10-15 years the TAY will be declining before it starts back up.
