Generations

Who is Generation X?

Generation X by all accounts lies in between the Baby Boomers and Millennials. What is in question though, is exactly when does Gen X start and when does it stop. Gallop says 1965-1979. The Pew Research Center has it listed as 65-80 while the Harvard Center uses 1965 to 1984. We have even seen the first year listed as early as 1961!
For this site, we will agree with Gallop and start with 1965, but we will end in 1976. We will, however, focus on things related to those whose childhood was mainly in the seventies, those who came of age in the eighties and the young adults in the nineties.
In the last few years, a new term called “Xennials” has been used to describe a micro-generation of folks born between the late seventies and early eighties. This group would be the middle ground between Gen X and the Millennials.
What do you think? Do you agree with the starting point being 1965 or should it go lower? Do you agree that Xennials are the middle ground between X and the Millennials and that there is a difference between the three?
