How Many Generation Z There Are In The UK [2024]?

by Tanya April 15, 2024

Generation Z, also known as Gen Z, iGen, or Centennials, are generational cohort born roughly between 1997-2013.

20% of the UK population is Generation Z

There are approximately 12.7 million Gen Z (18.8% of the population) living in the UK (as of 2021 data).

Gen Z is the 4th largest generation in the UK (Statista).

33% of UK Gen Z is employed

As of 2022, out of 12.7 million Gen Z in the UK, 4.3 million (33%) are employed (Statista).

That is 6% of the total UK population of 67 million (2022).

To compare approximately 12.2 million Millennials are employed, followed by 11.4 million Gen X, and 3.71 of Baby Boomers.

The % of Gen Z workforce is set to quickly increase in the next 5 years as more teenagers are reaching the working age (as of 2024, Gen Z are 11-27 years old).

(Additionally, please note that the actual number of Gen Z in the workforce is likely to be higher as many are self-employed or registered as a business, which the data above didn’t capture.)
