Biggest share of whites in U.S. are Boomers, but for minority groups it’s Millennials

There were more 24-year-olds in the U.S. than people of any other age in 2015. But for white Americans, 55 was the most common age, according to Census Bureau data.
In the histogram above, which shows the total number of individuals of each age last year, non-Hispanic whites tend to skew toward the older end of the spectrum (more to the right), while minority groups skew younger (more to the left).

Gen X is the most immigrant generation ever. Certainly many of the immigrants are PoC. But not all.

In any case 55 is certainly not the peak age for US born. It's got to be older than that.

It's not like there was a step function from Boom to X, vis a vis US vs foreign born.

There had to have been a gradual reduction in the % US born by cohort starting with an early to mid 1950s cohort.
The peak birth year during the Baby Boom was 1957, and its cohorts are 58-59 years old. However, the chart applies to people who are alive today, and it could be that mortality has knocked down the numbers of the 1957-1960 cohorts.

Alternatively, the data behind the chart could be a couple of years. If it is from, say, 2013, then the peak would come from 1957-1958 cohorts.
