BROOKINGS REPORT – Millennials between ages 18 and 34 are now synonymous with America’s young adults, fully occupying labor force and voting ages, according to a recent report by William H. Frey – a Senior Fellow with the Brookings Metropolitan Policy Program.
They comprise 23 percent of the total population, 30 percent of the voting age population, and 38 percent of the primary working age population. Among racial minorities their numbers are even more imposing. Millennials make up 27 percent of the total minority population, 38 percent of voting age minorities, and a whopping 43 percent of primary working age minorities.
Plainly, the millennial generation is ushering in the nation’s broader racial diversity.
