Junk Mail Report Indicates Baby Boomers Are Target Demographic

BOULDER, COLO. – Aug. 28, 2007 – Consumers over the age of 45 are being targeted with the most junk mail according to stopthejunkmail.com’s 2007 second quarter survey. Results show that the over 60% of surveyed participants are over the age of 45 years old, which include the baby boomer demographic.

Stopthejunkmail.com releases their consumer opinion survey quarterly in an effort to determine how best to reduce the environmental impact of postal junk mail. The survey is taken anonymously by a nationwide sampling of consumers to accurately show attitudes toward stopping junk mail.

The survey also asks consumers what they believe are direct mail’s “worst offenders” with banks at the top of the list followed by catalogs. The top three cancelled catalogs during the last quarter were Frontgate, Ballard Designs and Home Decorators Collection.
To view a copy of the survey results or get more information on stopthejunkmail.com, please contact Margot Brown at media (at) stopthejunkmail.com or visit their website at www.stopthejunkmail.com.

  • Baby Boomers are not the over 65 demographic you mention. Baby Boomers are ages 44 to 61.

  • “Consumers 65 and Over” are not “Baby Boomers” because the Baby Boom Generation is defined as those born between 1946 and 1964, which would currently make Baby Boomers between 42 to 61 years old, not 65 and over.

  • Gidday,
    Thanks Giselle and Rita for pointing that fact out, yes you are correct, baby boomers are between the ages of 43 – 61 years of age. I beg your pardon.

    We have corrected our Press Release to reflect the results that include the Baby Boomers. This quarterly report shows a lower number in this demographic than usual. In 2006 we had 4 consecutive quarters where the baby boomer demographic was over 40%.

    Cheerio,
    Margot

  • 46 year old baby boomer here – Interesting post. Over here in the UK we have recycling bins for our paper waste, I reckon if people would stop sending me Junk Mail i could stop throwing trees away on a daily basis.

    Any baby boomers reading this got any ideas about what we can do constructively with all this junk mail???
