What is the Generation X?

Generation X, also referred to as Gen X, is the name given to the generation group of people whose birth years fall between the mid-1960s and the early 1980s. Though the precise years forming the limits generally vary, they’re generally accepted to be ranging from 1965 to 1980.

The people forming the Gen X cohort are now in their mid-lives and approaching the peak of their careers and earning potential. Gen X are often the parents of the Gen Y group as well as the millennials. Owing to the shift in generational values in the US from the onset of the post-World War II era, the Gen X cohorts have been shown to be highly influenced by contemporary cultures, sub-cultures and trends of suburban lives which culminated from the early 1960s. One of the prominent features of the generational shift characterizing the Gen X is that the they group up with a marked decrease in adult supervision vis-à-vis their generational precedents.

The Gen X cohorts generally have entrepreneurial dispositions and are the first ones to push for a work-life balance in professional lives.
