20th Century Generations

generationsatage30

The Population Reference Bureau, in its Population Bulletin for March 2009, offers a fascinating 20-page examination of 20th Century US Generations, a portrait of the seven American generations born spanning the years from 1871 to 2001. The publication looks at a broad spectrum of similarities and differences between the generations, including generation size, comparative childhood experience, education, jobs, marriage and family, political identity and much more. Written by Elwood Carlson, a professor of sociology at Florida State University, it is an engaging and enlightening little document.

For a quick introduction to the report see this brief highlight.
