The Pew Research Center has enough authority that their opinion matters on stuff like this. They just announced the official definition of a millennial: Anyone born between 1981 and 1996. So anyone 22 to 37 this year.

That means millennials were between age 5 and 20 on 9/11...ages 12 to 27 when Barack Obama was elected...and ages 7 to 22 when Sammy Hagar temporarily reunited with Van Halen.

 Here's Pew's full breakdown of the generations...

  • Silent generation:  Born 1928 to 1945.
  • Baby boomers:  Born 1946 to 1964.
  • Generation X:  Born 1965 to 1980.
  • Millennials:  Born 1981 to 1996.
  • And for anyone born after 1996, there's no official name yet for the generation.
