2018: The Screwed Millennial Generation Gets Smart
TL;DR: millennials earn less than their parents and have been forced to move to suburbs. They're about as conservative, wanting to own homes and raise children.


Millenials earn $2000 less than the same age group made in 1980

20%+ of people 18 to 34 live in poverty, up from 14% in 1980

"the GINK generation (as in “green inclinations, no kids”) that she said meant not only a relatively care-free and low-cost adult life, but also “a lot of green good that comes from bringing fewer beings onto a polluted and crowded planet.”"

"millennials are following in the footsteps of previous generations by locating on the periphery major metropolitan areas and Sun Belt cities, most of which are simply agglomerations of suburbs."

"more 18- to 34-year-olds now live with their parents than with spouses or significant others for the first time since the question was first asked in the 1880s"

80% want to buy a home. Many can't due to high prices and low income (

The vast majority of millennials, according to Gallup and others, want to get married and have children. Their top priority, according to Pew, is to be “good parents.”

Despite endless talk about millennials as the group triggering a “back to the city” movement, census data shows that their populations in many core cities are stagnating or declining. In April 2016, the real estate website Trulia found that millennials were rushing out of expensive cities

Since 2010, the 20 to 29 populations have declined in the core areas of much celebrated youth magnets including Chicago (-0.6 percent) and Portland (-2.5 percent). Other areas, like Los Angeles and Boston, have lost millennials since 2015.

for workers between the ages of 22 and 34, rent costs claim upwards of 45 percent of income in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, and Miami, compared to closer to 30 percent of income in metropolitan areas like Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston.

18- to 29-year-olds were the age group least satisfied with life in Los Angeles

In the Bay Area, according to ULI, 74 percent of millennials are considering an exit, largely due to high housing prices.

In New York, incomes for people aged 18 to 29 have dropped in real terms since 2000, despite considerably higher education levels. At the same time, rents have shot up by 75 percent.

We have already passed “peak millennial” and are seeing the birth of a new suburban wave

More than 80 percent of 25- to 34-year-olds in major metropolitan areas already live in suburbs and exurbs, according to the latest data—a share that is little changed from 2010 or 2000.

4 in 5 people under 45 preferring the single-family detached houses most often in suburban locales

The income required to buy a home in Silicon Valley ($216,000), San Francisco ($171,000), Los Angeles ($115,000), or New York City ($100,000) dwarfs what is required in places like Orlando ($54,000), San Antonio ($54,000), or Nashville ($47,000).

The Millennial homeownership rates is 37% in Nashville, 29% in San Antonio and 27% in Orlando, compared to under 20% in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Among the 10 major metropolitan areas whose 25- to 34-year-old populations grew most rapidly between 2010 and 2016, seven have more than 95 percent of their population in suburban or exurban settings.

The top 10 regions with the fastest growth in their 25- to 34-year-old populations since 2000 include nontraditional urban areas such as Austin, Orlando, San Antonio, San Bernardino-Riverside, Las Vegas, Houston, Oklahoma City, and Jacksonville. In contrast, Boston ranks 40th out of 53 metro regions, New York 44th, San Jose 47th, Los Angeles 48th, and Chicago 51st.

The millennial suburb will be different—more walkable, more environmentally sustainable, and likely more connected eventually by autonomous technologies.

Flipping the Economics of Paying for Education, Because They’re Upside Down - The New York Times
Instead of charging students tuition — which often requires them to take out thousands of dollars in loans — students go to school for free and are required to pay back a percentage of their income after graduation, but only if they get a job with a good salary.
