Table 10 reports the responses by the respondents’ personal attributes. Upper- income and healthy people are far more likely to anticipate retirement, leisure, and enjoyment with their families than are other people. As they contemplate the next five years, more older baby boomer women than men look forward to retirement and leisure (43% women, 38% men) and to spending time with family (37% women, 26% men). Figure 5 reports the dreams of the sandwich generation.
