Millennials Outnumber Baby Boomers
and Are Far More Diverse, Census Bureau Reports
Young Children Now Majority-Minority

JUNE 25, 2015 -- Millennials, or America's youth born between 1982 and 2000, now
number 83.1 million and represent more than one quarter of the nation's population.
Their size exceeds that of the 75.4 million baby boomers, according to new U.S.
Census Bureau estimates released today. Overall, millennials are more diverse than
the generations that preceded them, with 44.2 percent being part of a minority race
or ethnic group (that is, a group other than non-Hispanic, single-race white).

These latest population estimates examine changes among groups by age, sex,
race and Hispanic origin nationally, as well as in all states and counties, between
April 1, 2010, and July 1, 2014.

Even more diverse than millennials are the youngest


Americans: those younger than 5 years old. In 2014, this
group became majority-minority for the first time, with
50.2 percent being part of a minority race or ethnic group.
