Although their numbers are small, Generation X is a vital part of the nation's commerce and culture. They account for the largest share of the nation's parents. Many were new homebuyers and got caught up in the housing bubble. How is the economic downturn affecting their incomes and spending? This book is your guide to these important consumers. One of the most distinct features of Generation X is its diversity, with blacks, Hispanics, and Asians all accounting for a significant proportion of the whole. This work shows how Gen Xers are changing and what to expect from them in the future. This work is designed for easy use. It is divided into eleven chapters, organized alphabetically, Attitudes, Education, Health, Housing, Income, Labor Force, Living Arrangements, Population, Spending, Time Use, and Wealth. The sixth edition of Generation X presents labor force data for 2008. The Census Bureau's latest population projections to 2025 are also included, along with estimates of household wealth from the Survey of Consumer Finances. The Health chapter includes new tables on the use of alternative medicine.
