A baby boom is any period of greatly increased birth rate during a certain period, and usually within certain geographical bounds and when the birth rate exceeds 2% of the population. Persons born during such a period are often called baby boomers. Conventional wisdom has it that baby booms signify good times and periods of general economic growth and stability.
