A superior resource for researchers who want to quickly and easily compare and contrast the demographics of the six living generations--iGeneration, Millennial, Generation X, Baby Boom, Swing, and World War II. It opens with an in-depth overview of the demographics of each generation and the 11 following chapters examine their attitudes, education, health, housing, income, labor force, living arrangements, population, spending, time use, and wealth. Each chapter includes tables and text clearly describing the most important trends, including what to expect in the future. Today's world changes rapidly and people who are as little as ten years apart in age can have very different experiences growing up, making them unlike one another in significant ways. American Generations reveals the differences and similarities among the generations of Americans.
