Generation Y

\ˌʤɛnəˈreɪʃən\ \waɪ\

People born between the early-1980s and late-1990s. 

They typically represent the children of baby boomers and their birth rate was closer to that of the baby boomers than Gen-X – for this reason they are sometimes referred to as the ‘second baby boom’. They grew up during the rise of digital technology, graduating from high-school around the turn of the millennium.
