For decades, Pew Retìm kiếm Center has been committed to lớn measuring public attitudes on key issues and documenting differences in those attitudes across demographic groups. One lens often employed by researchers at the Center lớn understand these differences is that of generation.

Generations provide the opportunity lớn look at Americans both by their place in the life cycle – whether a young adult, a middle-aged parent or a retiree – và by their membership in a cohort of individuals who were born at a similar time.

As we’ve sầu examined in past work, generational cohorts give researchers a tool to analyze changes in views over time. They can provide a way to understvà how different formative experiences (such as world events và technological, economic and social shifts) interact with the life-cycle and aging process to lớn shape people’s views of the world. While younger & older adults may differ in their views at a given moment, generational cohorts allow researchers to lớn examine how today’s older adults felt about a given issue when they themselves were young, as well as lớn describe how the trajectory of views might differ across generations.

Pew Retìm kiếm Center has been studying the Millennial generationfor more than a decade.But by 2018, it became clear to us that it was time lớn determine a cutoff point between Millennials and the next generation. Turning 38 this year, the oldest Millennials are well into lớn adulthood, và they first entered adulthood before today’s youngest adults were born.

In order lớn keep the Millennial generation analytically meaningful, & khổng lồ begin looking at what might be unique about the next cohort, Pew Research Center decided a year ago lớn use 1996 as the last birth year for Millennials for our future work. Anyone born between 1981 and 1996 (ages 23 lớn 38 in 2019) is considered a Millennial, và anyone born from 1997 onward is part of a new generation.


Since the oldest ahy vọng this rising generation are just turning 22 this year, and most are still in their teens or younger, we hesitated at first to lớn give sầu them a name – Generation Z, the iGeneration và Homelanders were some early candidates. (In our first in-depth lookat this generation, we used the term “post-Millennials” as a placeholder.) But over the past year, Gen Z has taken hold in popular culture & journalism. Sources ranging from Merriam-Webster và Oxford lớn the Urban Dictionarynow include this name for the generation that follows Millennials, and Google Trends data show that “Generation Z” is far outpacing other names in people’s searches for information. While there is no scientific process for deciding when a name has stuck, the momentum is clearly behind Gen Z.

Generational cutoff points aren’t an exact science. They should be viewed primarily as tools, allowing for the kinds of analyses detailed above. But their boundaries are not arbitrary. Generations are often considered by their span, but again there is no agreed upon formula for how long that span should be. At 16 years (1981 khổng lồ 1996), our working definition of Millennials is equivalent in age span to their preceding generation, Generation X (born between 1965 và 1980). By this definition, both are shorter than the span of the Baby Boomers (19 years) – the only generation officially designated by the U.S. Census Bureau, based on the famous surge in post-WWII births in 1946 & a significant decline in birthrates after 1964.


Unlike the Boomers, there are no comparably definitive thresholds by which later generational boundaries are defined. But for analytical purposes, we believe sầu 1996 is a meaningful cutoff between Millennials & Gen Z for a number of reasons, including key political, economic và social factors that define the Millennial generation’s formative sầu years.


Most Millennials were between the ages of 5 và 20 when the 9/11 terrorist attacks shook the nation, và many were old enough to lớn comprehover the historical significance of that moment, while most members of Gen Z have sầu little or no memory of the sự kiện. Millennials also grew up in the shadow of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, which sharpened broader views of the parties and contributed khổng lồ the intense political polarization that shapes the current political environment. And most Millennials were between 12 và 27 during the 2008 election, where the force of the youth vote became part of the political conversation & helped elect the first black president. Added to lớn that is the fact that Millennials are the most racially và ethnically diverse adult generation in the nation’s history. Yet the next generation – Generation Z – is even more diverse.

Beyond politics, most Millennials came of age & entered the workforce facing the height of an economic recession. As is well documented, many of Millennials’ life choices, future earnings & entrance to adulthood have been shaped by this recession in a way that may not be the case for their younger counterparts. The long-term effects of this “slow start” for Millennials will be a factor in American society for decades.

Technology, in particular the rapid evolution of how people communicate và interact, is another generation-shaping consideration. Baby Boomers grew up as television expanded dramatically, changing their lifestyles và connection to lớn the world in fundamental ways. Generation X grew up as the computer revolution was taking hold, & Millennials came of age during the mạng internet explosion.

In this progression, what is quality for Generation Z is that all of the above have sầu been part of their lives from the start. The iPhone launched in 2007, when the oldest Gen Zers were 10. By the time they were in their teens, the primary means by which young Americans connected with the website was through Smartphone devices, WiFi và high-bandwidth cellular service. Social truyền thông media, constant connectivity and on-demvà entertainment và communication are innovations Millennials adapted to as they came of age. For those born after 1996, these are largely assumed.

The implications of growing up in an “always on” technological environment are only now coming into focus. Recent retìm kiếm has shown dramatic shifts in youth behaviors, attitudes & lifestyles – both positive and concerning – for those who came of age in this era. What we don’t know is whether these are lasting generational imprints or characteristics of adolescence that will become more muted over the course of their adulthood. Beginning lớn trachồng this new generation over time will be of significant importance.

Pew Research Center is not the first lớn draw an analytical line between Millennials và the generation to lớn follow them, and many have offered well-reasoned arguments for drawing that line a few years earlier or later than where we have sầu. Perhaps, as more data are collected over the years, a clear, singular delineation will emerge. We remain open to recalibrating if that occurs. But more than likely the historical, technological, behavioral and attitudinal data will show more of a continuum across generations than a threshold. As has been the case in the past, this means that the differences within generations can be just as great as the differences across generations, & the youngest and oldest within a commonly defined cohort may feel more in comtháng with bordering generations than the one lớn which they are assigned. This is a reminder that generations themselves are inherently diverse & complex groups, not simple caricatures.

In the near term, you will see a number of reports and analyses from the Center that continue to lớn build on our portfolio of generational research. Today, we issued a report looking – for the first time – at how members of Generation Z view some of the key social và political issues facing the nation today & how their views compare with those of older generations. To be sure, the views of this generation are not fully formed and could change considerably as they age and as national and global events intervene. Even so, this early look provides some compelling clues about how Gen Z will help shape the future political landscape.

In the coming weeks, we will be releasing demographic analyses that compare Millennials to previous generations at the same stage in their life cycle to lớn see if the demographic, economic and household dynamics of Millennials continue khổng lồ st& apart from their predecessors. In addition, we will build on our research on teens’ technology useby exploring the daily lives, aspirations và pressures today’s 13- to lớn 17-year-olds face as they navigate the teenage years.

Yet, we remain cautious about what can be projected onkhổng lồ a generation when they remain so young. Donald Trump may be the first U.S. president most Gen Zers know as they turn 18, và just as the contrast between George W. Bush và Baraông chồng Obama shaped the political debate for Millennials, the current political environment may have a similar effect on the attitudes & engagement of Gen Z, though how remains a question. As important as today’s news may seem, it is more than likely that the technologies, debates & events that will shape Generation Z are still yet lớn be known.

We look forward lớn spending the next few years studying this generation as it enters adulthood. All the while, we’ll keep in mind that generations are a lens through which khổng lồ understvà societal change, rather than a label with which to lớn oversimplify differences between groups.

Note: This is an update of a post that was originally published March 1, 2018, to announce the Center’s adoption of 1996 as an endpoint to lớn births in the Millennial generation.
