What exactly is a Millennial? Until recently, there was never an “official” way to describe this generation of young Americans.
The Census Bureau projects that the Millennial population will reach 75.3 million in 2015, deeming them the largest generation in the United States. The oldest of this group are establishing themselves in steady careers, while the youngest were born into a world that has never lived without the Internet or iPods.
