This term refers to persons born following the baby boom of the post World War II era, especially those born in Canada and the United States during the 1960s and 70s.
A study of attitudes among young people in England, undertaken by Jane Deverson in 1964, led to the coining of the term. This period witnessed the hippy culture and counterculture rising across the Western world. The term 'Generation X' is used in the social sciences, demography, and marketing. It is most commonly used in popular culture.

In the 1980s the generation's influence became quite evident in popular culture, possibly reaching its peak in the 1990s. Although the term 'Generation X' dates as far back as the early 1960s, it gained popularity because of the novel 'Generation X: Tales for an Accelerated Culture', written by novelist Douglas Coupland in 1991. The novel depicts the angst felt by those born in the early 60s, who were originally and incorrectly labeled as being part of the baby boom generation, but could feel no connection to its cultural icons.
