Governing did a story about where in the country by state the various generations live. The story, A State-by-State Look at Where Each Generation Lives, ran July 31, 2014. According to the story
You'll find the greatest concentration of baby boomers in three northeastern states: Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont. Boomers make up just under 30 percent of the population in these states, which are also the nation's oldest in terms of overall population... For the most part, slightly fewer baby boomers tend to reside in southern states. This could soon change, though, if historical migration patterns hold true and boomers opt to move south as they retire.
There are interactive maps for the Silents, Boomers, Xers and Millenials. The silents, totaling less than 11% of the population, and thus the smallest cohort, live mostly in Florida, but also live in West Virginia, Maine, Montana, Arizona and Arkansas.
