    95-97 being "fixed" into Gen Z later on

    Even though there are many sources nowadays that use 1995 as the starting point of Gen Z, it seems that there are still a lot of other sources (such as the Pew Research Center) that lump 95-97 into Gen Y. Like, if you type "Millennials 1981 1997" or "Millennials Ages 18-34", you get a good amount of results.

    I'm guessing that in the future, these sources will probably retroactively "fix" the start of Gen Z back to 1995. Do you think this will anger some Y/Z cuspers? I know that if you go to pretty much any comments section about Millennials, the top comment is "I was born in 1983. I was told my whole life I was Gen X, now I'm a millennial? This is disgusting".

    Will Zers react the same way; i.e. "I'm 20, don't lump me in with 5 year olds who have iPhones and play Minecraft"?

    In a few countries, People born from '95-'97 barely qualifies for gen Z. But they definetely can't relate to the real gen Z(born in 00s) also real gen Y(born upto '90).
    '95 - '97 borns are like Y/Z cusps just like '77 - '80 born X/Y cusps.

    Who the hell still thinks that 1995-1998 babies are part of Gen Z, while 1999-2000 babies were the true Y/Z cusps?

    I agree. Personally, I would consider anyone born between 1995-2000 as Y/Z cusps, as they are not solely Gen Y or Gen Z.

    Pew Research used 18-34 as the age group for Gen Y in 2014, which would be 1981-1996. Not sure about 2015. 18-34 is the 'youth' market - but if 18-34 was Gen Y in 2014, that would have to be 19-35 in 2015. Gen Y can't remain young forever.

    I don't think it's about getting old. I think it's about why does a generation start arbitrarly in '95. As you say gen y ends in 96 so a lot of gen zers on this board are gen y by pews definition. So again why by popular US definition is a 94 a different gen than 95? Seems like we'll never know...

    Also to add: Another weird thing is how long and how short some generations are. Ex: Gen X is 11 years where is Gen Y is 17 years! That's almost two decades!?!?!?!?! And Baby Boomers are 18 years! The more years stuffed into a generation the less applicable your general experiences are gonna be. There is no objectivity to defining generations as of now.
