    "Baby boomers" are people who are born between 1946 and 1964.  That means as of this writing in 2012, baby boomer are within the age range of 48 to 66. 

    With average life expectancy of 78.1 years in the United States, and 69.4 year worldwide, middle age is 39 and 35 years old respectively.

    Senior citizen is a person at or above retirement age -- which is 65 in the United States.   

    So the majority of baby boomers are not quite senior citizen.  Hence they are middle age.

    A little bit of both.  Those born in 1952 to 1964 are still in the late 40's and in their 50's while those who were born in 1946 to1951 have reached the senior year.

    If I am not mistaken, "baby boomers" are people who were born during the period of 1946 to 1964.

    Thus, those "boomers" who were born in 1946 and 1947 are now senior citizens (because they are eligible for Medicare and the ones born in '46 are also eligible for Social Security retirement benefits), and the ones born between 1948 and 1964 are still middle-age.

    In other words, it is my opinion that age 65 is the first year of "senior-citizenhood."
