Generations defined …

We have all heard of different generations … but who is among Gen Y? or Gen X?

Here is a list of the Name of the Generations … simply look for the year you were born and you can see which Generation you fall in.

The name of the generation may be slightly different when defined by different organizations, and may have slightly different years for inclusion into which group falls into which range of years.

Of course, the U.S. Census provides information about U.S. demographics on national, state, county and census district scales.

Why might this be important information for you? When you read an article that is talking about a generation, is that your generation they are talking about? The links above are a handy reference to look up these definitions.

Just for fun: Where is the center of the U.S. Population from the 2010 census (and where has it been before)?

    As generations age, their definition and description get refined, especially for the younger generations. A discussion on year groups and why they’re named the way they are.
