This is the only real "truth" there is

Years that have almost always been lumped in with gen y are: 1980-1994

Years that used to get lumped in gen y and that still occasionally do are: 1977-1979, 1995-1999

https://adage.com/article/american-demographics/inside-gen-y/43704

This is an article from 2001 that shows how even back then 1994 was still considered the end of y, with 1977 being seen as the beginning. Then around the early-mid 2010s, the 95-99 guys started getting universally lumped in as millennial, mainly because they were in the same age range as late y at that point. Similarly, 77-79 were lumped in with y during the 2000s since they were in the same age range as the earlier portion of y.

Whatever current defintions the media are going by won't erase the history associated with the term. 77-79 & 95-99 will always be somewhat associated with it in the same way 61-64 are with gen x.

I would say the first true Z year would be as early as 2001 and as late as 2005. Those born in 2000 and earlier are definitely partially Millennials, if not full. But, I would approximately say 2003 is the first true Z year.
