Millennials in Adulthood: Detached from Institutions, Networked with Friends. Pew Research Social & Demographic Trends. March 7, 2014.
The Millennial generation is forging a distinctive path into adulthood. Now ranging in age from 18 to 33, they are relatively unattached to organized politics and religion, linked by social media, burdened by debt, distrustful of people, in no rush to marry, and optimistic about the future.They are also America’s most racially diverse generation.
