    The median data below (midpoint of the frequency distribution) is so disturbing. Looks like a lot of boomers and Gen X folks will not be retiring or living off social security alone. The average amounts saved appear to be skewed by the folks who have saved up.

    32-61 year old households averaged around $120,809 in retirement savings.
    30-34 year olds averaged $24,254 in retirement savings with a median of $700.
    60-64 year old averaged $229,101 with a median of $16,000.

    With an expansive definition allowing other liquid sources, 30-34 year old households averaged $43,162 with a median of $6,500.

    Households headed by someone aged 60-64 averaged $564,326 with a median of $39,000.
