Currently defined as those between the ages of 18 and 29, Millennials are the latest generation to emerge in America and make up nearly a quarter of the country’s population. Characteristics that researchers deem typical of the generation include optimism, tech-savvy, liberal leanings, and a solid educational background.
In fact, Millennials seem set to become the most educated generation in American history, with 40% attending college. And Millenials aren’t stopping there either – a whopping 50% of those in college say they also plan to pursue graduate degrees.
