* Of the portion no longer attending high school, 59% were enrolled in college last year. That’s a jump from the 53% college enrollment rate among millennials in 2002 and an even bigger jump from the 44% of Gen Xers in 1986.
* Just 13% are growing up in rural areas, reflecting a steady ongoing flow to metropolitan areas. For comparison, 36% of the early Baby Boomer generation lived in the countryside.
* 58% of the post-millennials’ 18-21 age segment worked in the last calendar year, down from the 72% rate in 2002. And for those post-millennials that did have a job, it was in all likelihood a part-time gig. Increased education could be one factor, one of the study’s authors told MarketWatch.
