Off Our Lawns and out of Our Basements: How We (Mis)Understand the Millennial Generation
Mechler, Heather
Journal of College and Character, v14 n4 p357-363 Nov 2013
In this article, the author explores the existing research on the characteristics of Millennials within historical, social, and economic contexts. While many researchers have made claims about Millennials, they fail to consider how parenting styles, economic factors, historical events, and shifts in educational priorities may have created the unique traits of this generation. Further, many of the findings about Millennials have come from limited data sets and flawed analyses. The author provides some suggestions for future studies and offers a new perspective that may prove useful to researchers in the area of emerging adulthood and the Millennial generation.
