Study Proved that Gen X Aren’t Slackers

    Generation X, the much maligned “slackers” born of the baby
    boomers, turned out not to be angst-ridden lazy bums after all.

    In fact, according to the Longitudinal Study of American Youth at the
    University of Michigan, they’re actually hard working, active, balanced
    and – gasp – happy people:

    The LSAY has released its first quarterly report on the 4,000 young
    adults who have participated in the study since 1987 and who continue
    to complete an annual survey. Generation X is widely defined as individuals
    who were born between 1961 and 1981 and who are today between 30 and
    50 years of age. LSAY participants are between 36 and 40 years old and
    represent the middle segment of Generation X.

    In broad terms, young adults in Generation X may be said to be
    active, balanced, and happy. They have completed more formal education
    than older American generations, work longer hours, and most report
    that they are satisfied with and enjoy their work. Two-thirds of LSAY
    participants have minor children at home and report that they engage
    in a wide variety of child-parent activities at home and through the
    child’s school. These young adults read a lot of material (after
    all, the Internet is the world’s largest reading machine) and
    often attend plays, concerts, and sporting events. By subtraction, they
    may sleep fewer hours than previous generations.
