"The seventh edition of American
Generations: Who They Are and How They Live is a superior
resource for researchers who want to quickly and easily compare and
contrast the six living generations—iGeneration, Millennial,
Generation X, Baby Boom, Swing, and World War II.
Opening with an in-depth overview of the demographics of each
generation, American Generations’ 11 following
chapters examine their attitudes, education, health, housing, income, labor force,
living arrangements, population, spending, time use, and wealth. Each chapter
includes tables and text clearly describing the most important trends, including
what to expect in the future.
Today’s world changes rapidly and people who are as
little as 10 years apart in age can have very different experiences growing up,
making them unlike one another in significant ways. American Generations reveals
the differences and similarities among the generations of Americans."
