Baby boomer is a North American-English term used to describe a person who was born between 1946 and 1964. Following World War II, these countries experienced an unusual spike in birth rates, a phenomenon commonly known as the baby boom. The term is iconic and more properly capitalized as Baby Boomers. The terms “baby boomer” and “baby boom” along with others (e.g., “goomies” or “goomers”) are also used in countries with demographics that did not mirror the sustained growth in American families over the same interval.
Generation X is a term used to describe generations in many countries around the world born from 1965 to around 1982. The term has been used in demography, the social sciences, and marketing, though it is most often used in popular culture.
My Generation does things different. We have to respect the Baby boomers, but can we also get a little respect?
