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.
