From 1946 to 1965 (inclusive) there were 4.2 million births in Australia. This 20 year period is generally referred to as the "Baby Boom" (http://blog.id.com.au/2012/population/australian-demographic-trends/who-are-the-baby-boomers/) (http://www.abs.gov.au/ausstats/abs@.nsf/7d12b0f6763c78caca257061001cc588/c9c319dd7e17542fca2572e300810a3f!OpenDocument).
