Millennial

A member of the generation that was born roughly between 1980 and 2000. Millennials grew up during economic and political flux, experiencing the end of the Cold War, the dotcom bubble, the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the late 2000s recession. Perhaps because of the sometimes volatile environment in which they were raised, millennials tend to marry and undergo other rites of passage later than earlier generations. They also tend to be technically savvy, which makes them a major demographic for technology marketers.
