Share of millennials by gender Germany 2018

Just like any other country in the world, Germany has its share of millennials. Broken down by gender, 51.7 percent of German millennials were male and 48.3 percent were female. The total age range in question is set from 18 to 35 years.

Marital status and children

The majority of millennials across the aforementioned age span, namely almost 72 percent, were single, while almost 27 percent were married. Some millennials were also divorced or even widowed. The highest share of millennials had no children aged under 14 and only a very small share had three or more children under that age. In fact, a quarter of German millennials was living in a one-person household.

Occupation and income

The largest share of millennials was employed in a company full-time. Meanwhile, most had a net income of 500 to 1,000 euros, while only four percent earned 2,500 to 3,000 euros. Higher salaries were increasingly rare.
