Is your neighbourhood overrun with Millennials, or bursting with Boomers? Use our interactive gadget to find out!
The latest population figures from the Office for National Statistics have revealed the generational makeup of the city and the wider UK.
Boomers were born between 1946 and 1964, Gen X between 1965 and 1980, and Millennials (also known as Gen Y) between 1981 and 1996.
In comparison, Gen Z (or Zoomers) – born between 1997 and 2012 – make up 19% of the population, Gen Alpha (2013 – 2025) 8%, and the Silent Generation (1928 – 1945) 8%.
Meanwhile, the so-called Greatest Generation (1901 – 1927) make up just 1% of people in the UK
One neighbourhood in Coventry has more millennials than any other part of the city, with Gen Y making up 52% of residents.
Another neighbourhood, shown on the map here, has the highest proportion of Zoomers in our area, at 46%.
You can see which group dominates your neighbourhood using our postcode search interactive:

The interactive analyses hyperlocal data – areas with a population of around 7,200 people each – to give you the figures for your neighbourhood.
UK-wide figures show that there is an even mix of Baby Boomers, Gen X, and Millennials across the country – with each of the three generations making up 21% of the population.
This distribution is as you would expect considering the different age groups involved.
However, the figures can be much more skewed on a local level, depending on whether a neighbourhood is a hotspot for young professionals, a haven for retirees, or somewhere in between.
