  • It's just a general term for people born between those respective years. It groups people of different ages together, showing that certain age groups have different cultural impacts and beliefs. My generation, Y, is known as the Millenial or Net Generation because we were the first ones to grow up heavily influenced by the Internet. Baby Boomers are known for being born Post-WWII. Generation X are known for being the first babies of the Boomers.

  • I was born in 1968, so I would be considered Generation X--however, when I think of "Gen-X" types I think of young "X-Games" people in their mid 20's to early 30's.

    * Generation X is the generation generally defined as those born after the baby boom ended, with earliest birth dates seen used by researchers ranging from 1961 to the latest 1981. Other names used interchangeably with Generation X are 13th Generation, and Baby Busters.

    * Generation Y is also known as Generation Next or the Millennials. The earliest suggested birth dates ranging from early 1982 to the latest in 1999.
