THE BEST GENERATION YEARS CHART & NAMES LIST

The generation years and names you are about to find in the chart below refer to Western social generations defined as a birth demographic cohort (in social science) of all of the people born during a specific period of time.

These generations are widely used in popular culture, marketing and advertising; and they have been the basis for sociological analysis.

Serious analysis of generations began in the nineteenth century, emerging from an increasing awareness of the possibility of permanent social change and the idea of youthful rebellion against the established social order.

Some analysts believe that a generation is one of the fundamental social categories in a society, while others view its importance as being overshadowed by other factors including class, gender, race, and education, among others.

Marketers love the idea of customer segmentation by generation cohort, however, some people who are part of a generation not being marketed are surely buying and consuming products and services; making the process of customer segmentation by generation a limited tool.
