"[A] group of all persons born within a limited span of years...Belonging to a cohort-group... is permanent, involuntary and only applies to a finite number of individuals. All members of the cohort-group— from birth to death— encounter the same national events, moods, and trends at similar ages.” (Strauss & Howe)
