Assignment 24228

Generational cutoff points are not exact. But, social science researchers tend to label those born between 1996 through 2009 Generation Z. Why not Millennials? It is argued that Gen Z has little to no memory of 9/11, while Millennials do. And 9/11 was an event that had an effect on the political and social landscape of America. There have been many articles about Generation Z for the last several years. American Gen Z’s were “in line to inherit a strong economy with record low unemployment.” Then, COVID-19 happened.
Pew Research Center is a non-partisan, social research entity that conducts public opinion polling to generate data-driven research about attitudes and trends shaping society. Pew has updated its previous Gen Z research since the pandemic. Read Pew’s findings here: On the Cusp of Adulthood and Facing and Uncertain Future: What We Know About Gen Z So Far (Links to an external site.)
What are three (3) findings in this article that truly caught your attention and why? Make sure you restate the finding before you share your own reflection and thoughts. Please relay this information in a numbered format (i.e. 1, 2, and 3). I originally had this assignment as a discussion board, but decided to make it more personal as many of you are actually part of what has been labeled Gen Z, have friends who are Gen Z, or maybe have children, siblings, or coworkers who may be a part of this generation. I want you to feel free to share your thoughts on this topic without judgment. No other format requirements are defined. So, feel free to use your own formatting.
