This publication provides a wide range of characteristics profiling the demographic, social, and economic status of the millennial generation. While the Baby Boom generation occupies much of our social and political dialogue, the millennial generation is actually a larger generation. As the Boomers age, their numbers will decrease while the millennials will be the driving social and political force in the coming decades. This book will focus on the those born between about 1982-2001. Millennials in America is an invaluable source for helping people understand what the census data tells us about who we are, what we do, and where we live. Benefits of this publication include: *It will fill an information gap because of the difficulty in extracting comparative data from the Census Bureau's American FactFinder dissemination system. *Users will have comparative data in a single reference volume. *It will eliminate the need for the data user to understand and manipulate detailed census data files and consolidate disparate tables in AFF. *This publication utilizes the PUMS data which is the ONLY source of data that can be used to define precise age ranges for the Millennial generation. The age detail available for census summary data simply aren't adequate for defining the Millennials and therefore prohibit compilation of characteristics specific to this important generation. Features of this publication include: *Detailed data on 11 subject areas including race, educational attainment, field of study, income, mobility status, employment status, housing, and more *Each subject area includes data for the United States, the 50 states and the District of Columbia, 622 counties, 331 cities, 381 metropolitan areas and 34 micropolitan areas. *Each part is preceded by highlights, maps, and figures illustrating how areas diverge from the national norm as well as differences among areas.

Which state has the highest percentage of 25- to 31-year-olds living with parents? Which city has the highest percentage of millennials with data plans for their cell phones? Scardamalia (president, RLS Demographics) draws on his extensive experience as New York state's chief demographer to provide data that can answer such questions about millennials in the US. This reference work is not designed for those wanting to know how millennials differ from boomers and other generations; rather, it is intended to illustrate differences within the millennial generation (defined by the author as persons born between 1982 and 2000). Data are provided for 2013 for geographic areas with a population of 100,000 or more, including states, the District of Columbia, counties, metropolitan-micropolitan areas, and cities. Data tables are organized and presented in 11 socioeconomic subject areas; some tables could benefit from being more clearly labeled. Scardamalia has custom-compiled these himself, using the data from the US Census Bureau's American Community Survey (ACS) Public Use Microdata Sample files. A particularly noteworthy feature of the book is its description of ACS and the author's invaluable tips for using and interpreting these data, written in a style accessible to non-statisticians. Summing Up: Recommended. All audiences. * CHOICE *
A truly impressive and comprehensive demographic study that is exceptionally well written, organized and presented, Millennials In America is very highly recommended as an essential and core addition to corporate, community and academic library American Demographics reference collections and supplemental studies reading lists. * Midwest Book Review *
