Our study (emailed to CTPP last night) covers, and measures, all generations from the Lost Generation to Millennials.

As I’m sure you’re all aware, an entire generation exists between the Boomers and the Y’s - but the bulk of generational analysis I’ve seen in recent years tends to focus on only on those two generations. It’s like those of us in GenX don’t even exist.


I know we aren’t as numerous as Boomers or Y’s, but to leave us out generational discussions entirely paints an incomplete picture of issues like commuting habits.

In case you haven’t seen these, we posted new profile sheets that use the 2006-2008 ACS and the 2011-2013 ACS Public Use Microdata Sample. 

In these profiles, Baby Boomers are defined as those born between 1946 and 1964, and Millennials are defined as those born between 1983 and 2000. 


For the 2006-2008 ACS, many of the Millennials were not yet of working age. 

The geography is limited only to those Counties for which PUMA geography has matching boundaries. 




I have seen some recent forecasts about declining gasoline prices, so we will see how this impacts the mode to work and auto ownership for younger workers in the near future.
