Generation Y embraces choice, redefines religion | Cheryl Wetzstein
“‘Generation Y,’ born between 1980 and 2000, is ‘bringing [media] industries to their knees’ by embracing IPod, TiVo and other technologies that allow unprecedented consumer choice, said Roger Bennett, co-founder of Reboot, a Jewish group that is examining generational issues. […] Reboot’s study, ‘OMG! How Generation Y is Redefining Faith in the iPod Era,’ was released yesterday in a press conference at the Brookings Institution. The study is based on a survey last year of 1,385 persons ages 18 to 25. To add depth, samples of black, Muslim, Jewish, Asian and Hispanic youths were included, said Anna Greenberg, vice president of Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research, a firm known for its work with liberal political groups. […]The Reboot study found that 23 percent of Generation Y, like Generation X, do not identify with a religious denomination or don’t believe in God. This is more than twice the number of nonbelievers among baby boomers, or those born between 1946 and 1965, Ms. Greenberg noted. Generation X was born between 1966 and 1979. […]The Reboot survey further found that Generation Y was ‘more liberal and progressive’ than older generations, both in political leanings and on social issues such as homosexual ‘marriage’ and immigration. Fifty-four percent of voters younger than 30 voted for Sen. John Kerry last year — the only age group the Democratic presidential candidate carried, the study noted.”

More and More, Kids Say the Foulest Things | Valerie Strauss
