The 2018 midterm elections significantly boosted the number of Millennials and Generation Xers in the lower chamber.
Generation Xers were hit particularly hard in the recession. Yet Gen Xers are the only generation of households to recover the wealth they lost in the downturn.
Generation X and younger generations make up a majority of the U.S. electorate. But if past U.S. midterm election turnout patterns hold true, these younger Americans are unlikely to cast the majority of votes this November.
As of 2017, 56 million Millennials were working or looking for work, more than the 53 million Generation Xers and 41 million Baby Boomers in the labor force.
Many Americans say they'd benefit from help in finding trustworthy information online, and about eight-in-ten adults say public libraries can help.
Generation Zers, Millennials and Generation Xers cast 69.6 million votes in 2016, a slight majority of the 137.5 million total votes cast.
Through both recession and recovery, the share of young adults living in their parents’ home continues to rise. As of 2016, 15% of 25- to 35-year-old Millennials were living in their parents’ home.
Millennial workers are just as likely to stick with their employers as their older counterparts in Generation X were when they were young adults.
The generation gap in American politics is dividing two younger age groups, Millennials and Generation X, from the two older groups, Baby Boomers and the Silent Generation.
Three-quarters of Americans say Sept. 11 was one of the 10 events in their lives that had the greatest impact on the country, with many also citing Obama's election and the tech revolution.
