From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Millennials (also known as Generation Y) are typically defined as the generation of people born from 1981 to 1996.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12][13] The United States Library of Congress, the U.S. Census, and the federal government of Canada (Statistics Canada) have officially cited the 1981-1996 birth range for Millennials as of 2022. These federal agencies state that 1996 is the last birth year of the Millennials.[14][15][16] A few researchers and demographers have 2001 as late as the ending birth year.[17][18]

People in this generation are sometimes called Echo Boomers because of the high birth rate during this period. The high birth rate almost exceeds that of the Baby Boom period after World War II. Some of the famous celebrities who are from Generation Y include Harry Styles, Katy Perry,Britney Spears, Natasha Bedingfield, Beyoncé, Demi Lovato, Joshua Wong, Beverley Mitchell, Selena Gomez, Lady Gaga, Kate Bosworth, Justin Bieber, Caroline Sunshine, Mandy Moore, Tom Holland, Drake, Taylor Swift, Sophie Turner, Miley Cyrus, Mara Wilson, Hailee Steinfeld, Colbie Caillat, Zendaya, Post Malone, Dua Lipa, Ariana Grande, and Avril Lavigne.
