    In 4 years 2013 babies are turning 10 in 2023 making the subject more complicated but not in a bad way since will be coming of age soon.

    Time sure flies by fast.

    They were:
    -born after 9/11
    -weren't in school (K-12) when the iPhone was released
    -are early 10s kids (didn't start core childhood until 2008, when things began shifting, economically, politically, technologically, and culturally)
    -were never in high school when Obama was still president
    -are still core teenagers in the early 2020s
    -don't vote until 2024

    2003 borns are core Z.

    What about 2002 babies?

    Well I honestly used to think they were core z since they weren't even there during one of the main events Millennials were youngest to recall: 9/11.

    I mean, those 7 years older than them (a.k.a those who were seniors in high school when '02 borns were still in 5th grade) are already considered the leaders of Gen Z.

    However, I don't know if its them maturing recently (as 16/17 year olds and upperclassmen in high school), but I've began just how they're very similar to myself and very late 90s borns. They were (at least)
    :
    - Born in the early 2000s (perhaps the very last year of the millennium era, imo)
    -Were half 2000s kids (the very youngest in the cohort)
    -Are major 10s teens
    -Were in high school when Obama was still president
    -Are old enough to vote in the 2020 election

    When it comes down to it, 2002 borns, IMO, are the very youngest in every situation between Y/Z and are probably the very last I could see relating to anything 'tail-end Millennial".

    Anything beyond, though is definitely core Z, without question. (2002 borns are still pushing boundaries- if it weren't for the 2020 election, I'd say they would more likely be placed as core Z'ers).

    So 2002 borns, in my opinion, are in-between early Z and core Z (the transition).

    I agree mostly.

    Although 1995 seems too early to be Z. Personally I would say 95 and 96 babies are leaning Y.

    To me, Z looks kind of like this:

    1997-2002: Early Z (Y influences)
    2003-2006: Core Z
    2007-2012?: Late Z

    When I say 95 and 96 are leaders of Gen Z, I mean that they're probably the first to associate with it on several terms. With that being said, I believe that they're definitely cusps. Obviously there isn't a clear cut line between the two generations. But if I had to pick a year to be the very beginning of Gen Z, but the very end of Y, I'd pick 95 (as they equally relate to both Gen Z and Gen Y).

    1996 is the last year of Gen Y in my book.

    There is still discrepancy regarding the start of Y, let alone Z. The possible start dates range anywhere from 1977 to 1985. 1980-1982 are the most common but nevertheless nobody can agree on when Y starts. This really just highlights the arbitrary nature of generations and their cutoffs. It is all up to personal interpretation.
