The Pew Research Center Has Officially Defined Who's a Millennial

posted by Scott and Sadie -

At this point, do you consider basically anyone younger than you a millennial?  Like, when babies are born today, are you like, "Those damn millennials.  Living with their parents, OF COURSE"?

 

Well . . . apparently, the Pew Research Center has enough authority that their opinion matters on stuff like this.  And they just announced the official definition of a millennial:  Anyone born between 1981 and 1996.  So anyone 22 to 37 this year. 

 

That means millennials were between age 5 and 20 on 9/11 . . . ages 12 to 27 when Obama was elected . . . and ages seven to 22 when Sammy Hagar temporarily reunited with Van Halen.

 

Here's Pew's full breakdown of the generations . . .

 

1.  Silent generation:  Born 1928 to 1945.

2.  Baby boomers:  Born 1946 to 1964.

3.  Generation X:  Born 1965 to 1980.

4.  Millennials:  Born 1981 to 1996.

5.  And for anyone born after 1996, there's no official name yet for the generation.
