Generation X Americans Born 1965 to 1976

"Although Generation X has received less publicity than its predecessor, the Baby Boom generation, it may well hold more critical insight into the future direction of the U.S. population. This work is a convenient, user-friendly, and authoritative location for information on Generation X." American Reference Books Annual

"Recommended for all libraries."Choice

The fifth edition of Generation X: Americans Born 1965 to 1976 tells the story of the small but vital generation spanning the ages of 29 to 41 in 2006.

Although their numbers are small, Generation X is a vital part of the nation's commerce and culture. They are having children and buying homes. They are moving up in their careers, their incomes are growing, and their spending is too. One of the most distinct features of the generation is its diversity, with blacks, Hispanics, and Asians all accounting for a significant proportion of the whole. Generation X: Americans Born Between 1965 and 1976 shows how Gen Xers are changing and what to expect from them in the future.

Generation X: Americans Born 1965 to 1976 is designed for easy use. It is divided into ten chapters, organized alphabeticallyEducation, Health, Housing, Income, Labor Force, Living Arrangements, Population, Spending, Time Use, and Wealth.

The 8th edition of Generation X presents labor force data for 2016, including updated labor force projections. The Census Bureau's latest population projections are also included, along with the latest estimates of household wealth. New to this edition is a chapter using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics' new American Time Use Survey.

With Generation X: Americans Born 1965 to 1976 on your bookshelf, an in-depth understanding of this struggling and influential generation is at hand.
