The debate of the Millennial 

Millennials (ages 18-35) are the largest generation in history, numbering approximately 92 million (compared to 77 million baby boomers or 61 million Generation X). Fifty-three percent already have children.  (Thickstun)

Until the 1990s, generations were thought by most people to span about 20 years, and labeling a generation with a catchy name usually meant that the cohort represented some major demographic trend. (Singham)
