In this post we look at how the wealth is distributed between the generations in the United States. The data is sourced from the federal reserve website. This site defines the generations as follows:
- Silent generation: born before 1946
- Baby boomers: born between 1946 and 1964
- Generation X: born between 1965 and 1980
- Millennials: Born after 1980
Were you surprised by the results? I wonder when generation Z (also known as zoomers, lol) will be shown in this data set, generation Z is anyone born after 1996 according to Wikipedia.
