Generation Sensible: The 18-year-olds of today

Generation Sensible: The 18-year-olds of today | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
Dubbed Generation Sensible, the 18-year-olds of today are much more likely to be found in the university library than the local pub, research suggests.

The Office for National Statistics paper compares their habits with those of 18-year-olds around the year 2000.

It might be an oversimplification to call today's older teenagers "boffins" and those at that age around the millennium "boozers", the ONS suggests.

But cigarettes and alcohol simply do not play as big a part in their lives.
