The Complete Visual Guide To Generation Z

There’s always discussion happening out there about generational differences, especially when it comes to internet and technology usage. Much of this discussion tends to divide people into two (very rough) groups – of older and younger, superusers and reluctant users, and a very very large grey area in between. That’s not to say that there’s nothing out there that breaks it down more, but for the most part, we don’t see as much detail as we see generalizations. So I was interested when I came across this detail of Generation Z which this particular infographic defines as folks who were born between 1995 and 2009. Keep reading to learn more about one of the youngest generations.

Generation “Z” Facts and Figures

  • The average Gen Z-er will have 17 jobs and 15 homes in their lifetime
  • Their average earnings in 2063 (around the age of retirement) will be $222,000
  • The average home price (in a capital city) at that time will be about $2.5 million
  • 1 in 2 will be university educated – compared with 1 in 3 from Gen Y and 1 in 4 from Gen X
  • They spend about 10 hrs, 19 minutes using technology per day
  • 77% of men and 61% of women from Gen Z are predicted to be obese by the time they reach adulthood

Commonly named life stages have been broken down into more categories than in the past. What used to be defined as childhood, teenager, and adulthood has now been broken down into:

  • Childhood
  • Tween
  • Teenager
  • Young Adult
  • Kippers
  • Adult
  • Career-Changer
  • Downager

    This is an interesting article! These “Civics” or Gen-Z as you have labeled them, will be the driving force behind a generation of positive movements for a better society. They will volunteer more, care about their community more, and generally be more cognizant of the environment around them.
