The Millennial Generation—Birth Years, Characteristics, and History
The Millennial generation refers to people who were born during the last two decades of the 20th century. The starting year for the Millennial generation is anywhere from 1977 to 1981. If you’re an older millennial, your parents were probably baby boomers (1946–1964). If you’re a younger millennial, on the other hand, your parents might be from Generation X (1965–1976).
