S1E12 – Breaking news in demographics with Pew Research

  • by

BREAKING (kidding, sort of). In late May, Pew Research announced they would “only do generational analysis when we have historical data that allows us to compare generations at similar stages of life” after a year-long analysis of their own approach to reporting on differences by generations, and the overall landscape of such content and reporting. This announcement supports a lot of what Farrah and Adam have been circling while conducting their research into the Millennial narrative, and Pew’s got the data to explain why their approach makes so much sense. Kim Parker, director of social trends research at Pew Research Center, joins to share more context on the thinking and data that got them to this exciting (to us) conclusion.
