  • Agnieszka Stanimir


Generation Y is a group of people born in the 80s and 90s of the twentieth century. In each country, determination of the age of persons belonging to this population may differ by several years. Attitudes of people of Generation Y to lifestyle and work, significantly differs from the opinion on this of older generations. The aim of the research was verification if the assessment of variables describing lifestyle and work expectation differs among 16-32 age people in years 2002 and 2012. Analysis of chosen single variables (the most adequate to lifestyle describing) were conducted. Highest differences between study groups were in perception of variable "important to have a good time". Followed correspondence analysis of grouped variables was carried out. Groups of variables were created with those which in a similar way describe lifestyle or work expectations. This procedure made it possible to obtain detailed information about the perception of the variables in the analyzed groups of people. The last analysis was done for all variables. It was a correspondence analysis with use of cluster analysis to indicate corresponding categories of variables. None of the groups of people was characterized by a negating statement for the variables: Important to try new and different things in life, Important to have a good time, Important to be successful and that people recognize achievements, Important to seek fun and things that give pleasure, Important to make own decisions and be free.
