The number of Millennials and Generation X-ers in the U.S. House of Representatives rose slightly with the new 117th Congress, though less so than with the 116th. Still, older generations still make up the majority of senators and representatives.
Republicans added more Millennials and Gen X-ers (28) to the House in this election cycle than Democrats did (10), according to a Pew Research Center analysis.
The latest election cycle brought the House its youngest current representative (Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina) and the Senate its first Millennial (Jon Ossoff of Georgia).
Boomers make up 230 voting members in the House, down from 270 representatives in the 115th Congress. And the ranks of the Silent Generation continue to dwindle, from 42 at the start of the 115th Congress to 27 now.
