Per an ARRP survey, there are stark differences between the now most populist generation in the U.S., known as the Millennial generation (75.4 million people), born between 1981 and 1997, and the baby boom generation (74.9 million), born between 1946-1964. While interesting, it's important to note the large age difference between these two generations, and that people change a great deal between their 20s-30s, and their 60s. So, who knows how the younger generation may change in the coming decades? Perhaps, they'll grow to resemble the boomer generation more than we realize!
Following are those differences: Millennials aren't as eager to drive as boomers; they are delaying buying real estate and getting married, if at all; they reveal their salaries and worry less about their privacy; they're rather buy a sub than make a sandwich & prefer boneless chicken to drumsticks; they want to dress comfortably for work, and do not buy pricey clothing nor eat out in higher end venues, in general; due to technology changes, few have regular access to & use of a landline phone; and 'saving the planet efforts' seem less prominent.
