What is a Millennial?
Now that I am running a personal finance blog for Millennials I get asked one question all the time; “who is considered a Millennial?” It is a very common question as most people know the Millennial generation, also known as Generation Y, as simply being young (and often times selfish, immature, entitled, etc.). But what birth years equate to a Millennial and who exactly is considered to be part of the Millennial generation?
Millennials & Generation Y
I am here to clarify who Millennials are and which birth years make you a Millennial. Millennials (also known as Generation Y) are the demographic cohort following Generation X. They are referred to as Millennials because they (me included) grew up during the new millennium.
Millennials are defined as individuals born between 1982 and 2004.
