Generational research

What is a generation?

Generation: All of the people born and living at about the same time, regarded collectively or the average period, generally considered to be about thirty years, during which children grow up and have children of their own.

Stage of Life interns, bloggers and editors have compiled a list of cultural influences for each generation.  Our research gives a brief summary of the generation, and outlines the top books, music, movies, tv shows and historical milestones occurring during the birth period dates specified for each generation.

From Gen Y to Gen X to the Baby Boomers, take a few moments and explore the below generations - just click on the image or text link to take you to your specific generation page...you may just stumble upon a memory or find something inspiring...
