THE MILLENNIAL POPULATION BREAKDOWN – According to the Brookings Institution, a nonprofit public policy organization, the millennial generation-- over 75 million strong-- is America’s largest, eclipsing the current size of the post-war baby boom generation. Millennials make up nearly a quarter of the total U.S. population, 30 percent of the voting age population, and almost two-fifths of the working age population. More than a third of all millennials ages 25 to 34 achieved college educations by 2015, up from less than 30 percent for comparably aged young adults in 2000, and not quite a quarter for those in 1980. Their report also features an interactive map that breaks down the overall millennial population share for the nation’s 100 largest metropolitan areas. To access the report and map, visit
