            The Millennial Generation, those born beginning in 1980 and who received their name because they began coming of age after 2000, is now the largest population group in the U.S. The size of this group and the expectation that it may fundamentally change the nature of our country in the same way as the Baby Boomers, has led to a great deal of speculation about how it will affect our region and its communities. To learn more about this group and what we might expect from them, click HERE to read the SSCRPC's newest report, The Millennials: What Local Leaders Should Know about America's Newest Generation - A Review of Surveys and Assessments.
