Generation Next

A new national survey suggests that the views of young people today on politics, social attitudes and even life goals are far different from those of their parents. Here are a few of the findings...

Compared with 20 years ago today's young adults...
  • Have more casual sex: 75%
  • Resort to violence more: 70%
  • Binge drink more: 69%
  • Use more illegal drugs: 63%
  • Vote less often: %49
For the full report, click here.

Throughout this month on PBS there will be a documentary called "Generation Next: Speak Up and Be Heard" that will deal with these findings and interviews with 16-25 year olds across the country. You can read more about that here.
