Like Generation X, the Swing generation is smaller than the generations that surround it—the older World War II generation and the younger Baby-Boom generation.
This period of fewer births resulted in a numerically small generation sandwiched between two much larger ones. In 2008, there were 49 million Generation Xers, aged 32 to 43. The generation accounts for only 16 percent of the population, well below the 25 percent share accounted for by Boomers and Millennials. Generation X makes up 22 percent of the adult population compared with Boomers’ 34 percent and Millennials’ 26 percent. Although the media often overlook Generation Xers, businesses cannot afford to ignore them.
The Swing generation now numbers 27 million. It accounts for 9 percent of the total population and 12 percent of adults. But its small size belies the inﬂuence it wields on American society. The women of the Swing generation were the ﬁrst to move into the workforce in substantial proportions. Many leaders of the social movements of the 1960s and 1970s were members of the generation, including Gloria Steinem, Jesse Jackson, and Abbie Hoffman. Much of the popular culture credited to the Baby Boom was actually created by the Swing generation.
