Right. This blog is about to start to rock'n roll, as I start first of all sticking up data.
First off here is the chart for the 25 to 49 age group as a % of the total population. This group seems to have just more or less peaked at 40% of the total. This is one of the highest proportions I have seen for any society to data, and undoubtedly, in part, helps explain the almost unique characteristics of the recent housing boom in Spain.
