This research report presents findings from Generation X and Generation Y from the Life Patterns project.
The Life Patterns is a two-decade longitudinal project run by the Youth Research Centre. It tracks over time two cohorts of young people (Gen X since 1991 and Gen Y since 2005) in Australia. In this report, we show commonalities and differences between both generations. The report reveals the significance of personal relationships, job security and wellbeing for both generations.
