Table of Diversity Element: Generation X

The Table of Diversity Element Generation X (Gx) is in the tenth column, Age, on the Table of Diversity.

"Generation X refers to people born between the mid-1960s and about 1980, directly following the Baby Boomers generation.

Gen X is also known as the 'MTV Generation', the 'Latchkey Generation' and the 'Forgotten Generation'.

Generation X encompasses the children born in the '60s and '70s when shifting societal and cultural changes started by the after-effects of World War II were becoming more prominent. For example, many more women were working, technology was rapidly changing, and divorce was on the rise.

Generation X is a term born from generational theory in the early 1990s, a time when X symbolized an unknown variable or a desire not to be defined.

Generation X members were typically born between the mid-1960s and 1980. The Pew Research Center says Generation X covers people born between 1965 ad 1980. The Social Security Administration defines Gen X as people born between 1964 and 1979."
