It’s official: More millennials are living in the U.S. than baby boomers. And barring some unforeseen misfortune that befalls only those born between 1981 and 1997, the population gap between the two generations will only widen.
The news comes from the Pew Research Center. Pew took the most recent data from the U.S. census and announced that 75.4 million millennials live in the U.S. today, a half million more than the 74.9 million boomers included in the census.
Pew said millennials took over the top spot in workforce population last year, its 53.5 million workers easing past both boomers (44.6 million) and Gen Xers (52.7 million) in the first quarter of the year.
