Meet Generation Alpha, the 9-year-olds shaping our future

Generation Alpha got its start in 2010, at a rate of 2.5 million births per week. They are primarily the children of Gen Y - Millennials born between 1980 and 1995.

I did not realize that there was a Gen Alpha, but perhaps I am just out-of-touch! To recap, then:

  • Generation X: Born between 1965 and 1980
  • Generation Y (aka Millennials): Born between 1981 and 1995
  • Generation Z: Born between 1996 and (evidently now) 2009

One thing's for sure, we'd better treat Generation Alpha well, since they'll be taking care of us X'ers in our sunset years.
