Pew Research Center - Millennials Officially Defined!

Well, apparently the Pew Research Center has announced the official definition of a millennial:

Anyone born between 1981 and 1996.  So anyone 22 to 37 this year. 

That means millennials were between age 5 and 20 on 9/11, ages 12 to 27 when Obama was elected, and ages seven to 22 when Sammy Hagar temporarily reunited with Van Halen.

Here's Pew's full breakdown of the generations:

1.  Silent generation:  Born 1928 to 1945

2.  Baby boomers:  Born 1946 to 1964

3.  Generation X:  Born 1965 to 1980

4.  Millennials:  Born 1981 to 1996

5.  And for anyone born after 1996... well, there's no official name for you guys yet.
