Plan Your Ideal Movie Night and We’ll Guess Your Generation

The Silent Generation was born between 1925 and 1945. (Sometimes listed as 1925-1942).
According to a 1951 Time magazine article, this age group was dubbed the “Silent Generation” because they were more circumspect than their parents. “In contrast to their forefathers and mothers’ ‘Flaming Youth,’ today’s younger generation is a still, tiny flame.”
With visionary rock stars, legendary filmmakers, television icons, beat poets, gonzo writers, and innovative political satirists, The Silent Generation helped form twentieth-century pop culture.
The Silent Generation has never had a president.
Baby Boomers born between 1946 and 1964 (Sometimes listed as 1943-1964)
The term “baby boomers” was coined in response to an increase in post-World War II birth rates.
There were nearly 2.4 million baby boomers at the end of 1946, the first year of the baby boom. There were almost 72.5 million baby boomers in 1964, the last year of the baby boom. The population peaked in 1999, when 78.8 million baby boomers were born in the United States, including those who immigrated and were born between 1946 and 1964.
Bill Clinton was the first member of the baby boom generation to be elected president. Presidents George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump are all baby boomers.
According to the Census, the baby boom started in 1946, but Howe and Strauss, writers of the seminal 1991 book “Generations: The History of America’s Future,” argued that the baby boom began in 1943 as a social and cultural phenomenon.
Generation X, born between 1965 and 1980 (Sometimes listed as 1965-1979)
“Class X” was the title of a chapter in historian Paul Fussell’s 1983 book, “Class: A Guide Through the American Status System.” The term was coined by novelist Douglas Coupland for his 1991 book, “Generation X: Tales for an Accelerated Culture.”
No member of Generation X has ever held the office of President.
While approximately 75% of this group receive more than baby boomers did at the same age, just 36% have more wealth than their parents as a result of debt, according to a 2014 Pew survey.
According to Pew, Generation X and millennials accounted for more than half of the electorate in the 2016 presidential election. For the first time in decades, younger voters outnumbered older voters, although narrowly. Millennials and Generation X-ers (aged 18-51) cast 69.6 million ballots, compared to Baby Boomers and older voters, who cast 67.9 million votes (age 52 and up).
According to Pew Research, Generation X will outnumber baby boomers by 2028.
The Millennial Generation
1981-1996 (Sometimes listed as 1980-2000)
The word millennials was coined by Howe and Strauss in 1991, the year their book “Generations” was published.
According to the Census Bureau, the number of millennials in the United States surpassed that of baby boomers in 2014. According to the Census, millennials numbered approximately 83.1 million, compared to 75.4 million baby boomers. Millennials made up a fifth of the country’s population. According to the Census, millennials are also more diverse than previous generations, with 44.2 percent belonging to a minority race or ethnic group.
According to Pew, about 39% of millennials aged 25-37 have a bachelor’s degree or higher, a higher proportion than previous generations. In 2018, millennials with a bachelor’s degree or higher earned a median annual salary of $56,000, about the same as Generation X jobs in 2001. Without a college degree, millennials earned less than previous generations. In 2018, approximately 46% of millennials aged 25-37 were married, a lower percentage than Generation X (57%), baby boomers (67%), and the Silent Generation (46% ). (83 percent ).
