Millennials have often led older Americans in their adoption and use of technology. But there has also been significant growth in tech adoption in recent years among older generations.
The 2018 midterm elections significantly boosted the number of Millennials and Generation Xers in the lower chamber.
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.
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.
Recent presidential elections have been dominated by voters from the Baby Boom and previous generations. That may change this November.
Generation X has a gripe with pulse takers, zeitgeist keepers, and population counters. We keep squeezing them out of the frame.
