The Millennials

"The information is presented in a convenient and user-friendly manner that will encourage browsing as well as ready-reference use. This is a useful companion volume to Generation X and The Baby Boom and is recommended for academic and public libraries." American Reference Books Annual

The new 6th edition of The Millennials: Americans Born 1977 to 1994 provides a demographic and socioeconomic profile of the generation that was aged 11 to 28 in 2005. It numbers 75 million and accounts for 25 percent of the total population—close to the Baby-Boom's 26 percent share.

The Millennials: Americans Born Between 1977 and 1994 examines the youth generation from two perspectives. One, as independent individuals establishing themselves in the household and labor market. Because about half the Millennial generation is not yet independent, the second perspective is on the lifestyles of children, examining, for example, the labor force participation of mothers, day care arrangements, and the spending of married couples with children.

The Millennials: Americans Born Between 1977 and 1994 is designed for easy use. Its ten chapters examine Millennials' Health, Housing, Income, Labor Force, Living Arrangements, Population, Spending, Time Use, and Wealth.

New to this edition are data on the health of the population, including updated estimates of the sexual activity and drug use of teens and young adults. The Census Bureau's latest population projections are also included in the book, along with estimates of household wealth and, new to this edition, a chapter with data from the new American Time Use Survey. Also included are the latest numbers on alcohol and cigarette use among teenagers.

Each new generation of Americans is unique and surprising in its own way. With The Millennials: Americans Born Between 1977 and 1994 on your bookshelf, you won't be surprised by the unique characteristics of this exciting generation of Americans.
