About the Fidelity Investments 2016 Millennial Money Study
The Fidelity Investments® Millennial Money Study is a follow-up to the 2014 Millennial Money Study. The study was conducted from July 27 to August 2, 2016 by GfK Public Affairs and Communications, using GfK’s KnowledgePanel®. In total, 615 adults, 25 to 70 were interviewed: 305 were Millennials (born after 1980, although for the purpose of this study, Millennials are defined as between 25-35 to ensure they were old enough to work full-time), 155 were Gen X (born 1965-1979) and 155 were Boomers (born 1946-1964). To qualify respondents had to have either a living parent or an adult child over the age of 18. Data was weighted to bring each group in line with the population they represent.
