Thirty-six new facts about Gen Y

Posted on: August 24, 2010

Hey everyone!

I told you that I would be back. I stumbled upon this article from Rosetta Thurman.com that describes Generation Y ( those born between 1980-2000).

The findings are broken down into several categories: Education,Work Ethic,Racial Make-up, Family , Financial Outlook, and Technology.

Here are a few fun facts from the article:

” Generation Y is more ethnically and racially diverse than older generations, with people of color making up about 40% of our population…Half of all young people of color are Hispanic”

“So far, 1 in 5 Millennials are college graduates. An additional 26% are currently in school and plan to graduate from college, while an additional 30% are not in school but expect to someday earn a college degree.”

“About 37% of 18- to 29-year-olds have been underemployed or out of work during the recession, the highest share among the age group in more than 30 years… Nearly 2/3 of all Millennials have full- or part-time jobs…13% of all Millennials are students who do not work for pay.”
