A cohert of people commonly known as the Millenials, or the Next Greatest Generation. The actual demographics of the birth boom occurred between 1980 to 1994. Meaning those born from the beginning of 1980 to the end of 1993. Those born in 1994 and after are excluded. They are the children of the Baby Boomers (post WW2 1945-1964) and are known as the Echo Boomers. They remember a time before the technology boom of the mid to late 90's and grew up influenced by Cold War Era, the collapse of the Soviet Union, the attacks on 9/11, 1992 Rodney King Riots, the late 80's early 90's recession, the Gulf War, and the Y2K bug. The latest members of Generation Y were born during the presidency of George H.W. Bush, the 41st President of the US. They grew up without cell phones, but rather pagers, without Ipods, but rather CD players, without computers, or internet. Internet had only begun to become widespread in early 1994, hence the end of the generation. They remember the early toys of the late 80's and early 90's such as Gameboy, Sega Genesis, Super Nintendo, N64, Furby, Pogs. Popular sitcoms of the generation include Full House, Saved by the Bell, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Bay Watch, the Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Married with Children. As well as cartoons such as Dragon Ball Z, the Pinky and the Brain, Ren and Stimpy, Beavis and Butthead, Doug, the Animaniacs, etc.

A cohort of a group of people born form Generation X. The demographic boom of Generation Y took place between 1980-1994. Therefore anyone born in 1994 or after, the most common ending date being 2010, is a member of Generation Z. They do not recall much of the events of the 9/11 attacks and grew up in the technology boom of the late 90's and early 2000's. Unlike Generation Y, they did not grow up recalling the Cold War era and were born in the post years after the collapse of the Soviet Union.
