How to Tell If a ‘Fact’ About Millennials Isn’t Actually a Fact

Josh Humbrun:

It has become difficult to avoid research about so-called millennials, the unofficial generational nickname typically applied to people born in the 1980s and 1990s.

According to research (collected from this reporter’s in-box):

• They will soon be the majority of the U.S. workforce–a huge generation!

• Slightly more than one-third of them are skilled at 3D printing and 22% of them are skilled at driverless cars–new technology!

• 79% of them have bachelor’s degrees–so educated!

• 17% of millennials would “rather become a YouTube star than fall in love”–different priorities!

• And 55% more millennials are signing up for 401(k) plans–good savers!
