Choosing your generation?
#59
I like having percentages on the cusp years based on events that generations experienced. For the Boomers and Gen Xers it's likely similar to this:

1952: 100% Prophet (started elementary school before the Space Race, spent most of elementary school years before JFK's assassination, started middle school before the Great Society laws, started high school before the 1968 social unrest, spent most of their high school years before the moon landing, graduated high school before 18-year-olds could vote, and graduated college before the fall of Saigon)
1953: 85% Prophet, 15% Nomad
1954: 70% Prophet, 30% Nomad
1955: 60% Prophet, 40% Nomad
1956: 45% Prophet, 55% Nomad
1957: 40% Prophet, 60% Nomad
1958: 30% Prophet, 70% Nomad
1959: 15% Prophet, 85% Nomad
1960: 100% Nomad (started elementary school after the Great Society laws, spent most of elementary school years after the 1968 social unrest, started middle school after the moon landing, started high school after abortion was legalized, spent most of their high school years after Nixon resigned, graduated high school after Star Wars was released, and spent most of college after the Iranian Revolution)

1974: 100% Nomad (started elementary school before the launch of MTV, spent most of elementary school years before the crack epidemic, started middle school the same year as the Challenger disaster, started high school before the Berlin Wall fell, spent most of their high school years before a public World Wide Web, graduated high school before the Oklahoma City bombing, and graduated college before the Lewinsky scandal)
1975: 85% Nomad, 15% Civic
1976: 70% Nomad, 30% Civic
1977: 60% Nomad, 40% Civic
1978: 45% Nomad, 55% Civic
1979: 30% Nomad, 70% Civic
1980: 15% Nomad, 85% Civic
1981: 100% Civic (started elementary school after the Challenger disaster, spent most of elementary school years after the Berlin Wall fell, started middle school after the World Wide Web was public, started high school after the Cold War ended, spent most of their high school years after the O.J. trial, were still in high school when the Columbine shooting took place, and graduated college after the 9/11 attacks)
