Scientists record high death rate among those born after 1981

June 7, 2019  23:45

This isn’t the first year that scientists of the world are focusing on millennials, that is, those who were born between the years of 1981 and 2000. Experts refer to them as “a mirror that reflect many of society’s problems” and pinpoint several factors that are a cause for concern. This is stated in an article in The New York Post.

Based on a report from researchers at Stanford University and other institutions, death rates among people 25 to 34 increased by upward of 20% between 2008 and 2016 — mostly due to a rise in both suicides and drug overdoses.

In addition, millennials who get only a high school diploma earn far less than their counterparts in the Gen X and baby boomer cohorts at the same age.

Earlier, the Blue Cross Blue Shield Report stated that there are unprecedented indicators of diabetes, depression and disorders among millennials.
