Generation X Snapshots

​Generation X is the population group born between 1965 and 1979.  Because the generation falls between two large cohorts, the Baby Boomers and Millennials, Gen X is considered the sandwich generation.  Through a series of infographics, AARP Research presents several key Gen X metrics, specifically their demographical makeup, financial behavior, health status and behavior, technological skills and behavior, and their travel and leisure interests.
