The Generations Defined

The Silent Generation = born between 1928 & 1945, 74 – 91 years old

Boomers, 1946 – 1964, 55 – 73 years

Gen X, 1965 – 1980, 39 – 54 years

Millennials, 1981 – 1996, 23 – 35 years *

Gen Z, 1997 – 2012, 7 – 22 years

Generation Alpha, 2013 – 2028**

* The term “snowflake generation” was one of Collins English Dictionary’s 2016 words of the year. Collins defines the term as “the young adults of the 2010s (born from 1980-1994), viewed as being less resilient and more prone to taking offence than previous generations”.

** Generation Alpha. A picture of Generation Alpha, shows that they are or will grow up to be the best-educated generation ever, the most technologically immersed, the wealthiest, and the generation more likely than any in the past century to spend some or all of their childhood in living arrangements without both of their biological parents.
