Data Nugget: Millennials, Officially the Most

Millennials now represent the largest segment of the workforce.

You probably noticed rumblings of change in your association’s ranks as long as a decade ago, so we’ve long known this was going to happen. As of the first quarter of 2015, the millennial generation (ages 18 to 35 in 2015) now makes up the largest portion of the U.S. workforce and, by extension, your association’s market of members and prospects. Time marches on.
