    In fact the baby boomer generation is the only generation that makes sense.
    Everything else is basically an attempt to label people (as if we haven't had enough of that).
    Fertility rates actually dropped before 1960, so really the generation should end in 1959. Since when is a generation defined by fertility rates, considering that is something no one can experience. Also, the name silent generation better suits a group of people born between the end of WWI and the start of WWII when there was silence in the world. These labels better fit birth groups, not generations.

    But the 1900s century started in 1900 and the 2000s century started in 2000. Gen Z start in 2000, but not just because it is the start of a new millennium. Plenty of other reasons I could write a book about.

    Actually, the twentieth century started on January 1st, 1901, and the 21st century started on January 1st, 2001. There was no year 0. It went from 1 B.C. to 1 A.D. So centuries always begin with the year that ends in "1," rather than "0."

    Right, but we are referring to the 2000s century: 2000-2099. We call the decade before that the 90s: 1990-1999, not the 30th decade: 1991-2000. I know there is no year 0 and 21st century is 2001-2100, but we are referring to the century as 2000-2099 calling it the 2000s century.

    Gen Y starts somwhere in the early 80s, the specific start is irrelevant since they are cuspers anyways

    I might go with 1984 as the start since they were the first to graduate high school/were still minors after 9/11.

    Yeah, Gen Y is the generation which has the most trouble being defined. One thing for sure, never rely on Pew for the definition as Pew keeps decreasing the cutoff and not Strauss and Howe, cause they just increase every newer generation by a couple of years. Gen Y is 23 years long to them making 1982-2004 their definition. 2000-2004 isnt gen y. Also, their Boomer end date is what really gets to me. If they either reduced it by one year or increased it by four years, that would have made it fine. I rather have the 1946-1964 or 1940-1959 definitions, but the second one appeals better to me cause 1960-1964 had a differently lifestyle, and fertility rates were already low by 1959. Gen Y start dates range anywhere from 1977-1986. Dont really on Jason dorsey either. He says 1977 as gen y only cause he was born in 1978 and he considers himself as a millennial, even though he kept ranting about them in every video. 1980 works best since they were the first to be teenagers in the 2000s, and the first to not be able to graduate in under 4 years from college before 9/11 as 1979 were able to graduate as early as 4 months before the attacks. But boomer end date ranges anywhere from 1959-1964 with 1959 and 1964 being the most common end dates.

    1982 is also a good one.

    1946-1964: Boomers
    1965-1981: Gen X
    1982-1999: Millennials
    2000-2015: Gen Z

    I think the best start dates for Y are the following. 1980 works best for me, but 1981 and 1982 are the only other sensible start dates. While this ranges from 1977-1986, 1977-1979 is too X and 1982-1985 are too Y.

    1980-The last to be too young to graduate college in four years before 9/11 as well as the first to be teenagers in this millennium. They were also the first to be under full adulthood age (20 and higher) before the world population hit 6 billion in late 99.
    1981-The last to graduate high school before world population hit 6 billion in late 99.
    1982-The first to graduate high school in this millennium and the first to be under full adulthood (age 20 and up) before 9/11

    The best start dates for X are these. This ranges from 1960-1965 with 1960 and 1965 as the most common start dates. First one appeals for me, but second one is the only other reasonable one. 1961-1964 should be in the same generation as 1960 as I dont see a difference between 1960-1964.

    1960-The first to be born after the year Hawaii became the 50th state of the US and after the year of NASA’s first mission, the Mercury Program.
    1965-The first to be too young for primary school before Apollo 11 and the invention of the internet in 1969.

    Other than what I listed above, I can agree with how you defined the generations

    I dont think it makes sense to define a generation based on fertility rates. Its not like boomers actually cared about how of their boomer peers were being born each year. I think 1960 should begin Gen X, cause NASA began all the space missions in 1959 and that became a thing throughout the 1960s with Apollo 11 in 1969. They should rename the Boomer generation to something else. The name boomer sounds so retarded. Fertility rates began to decline in the late 1950s anyways, so no difference, and they were in decline ever since, except during the years 1989-1994, and 1998-2009, fertility rates in the US were 2.00 or higher.
