The average millennial may sleep and game more than older generations, but is more educated, according to new US government research reported by Bloomberg Thursday.

Millennials, or those born between 1981 and 1996, spend about 20 minutes more per day sleeping, and double the amount of time playing games than older generations, according to a Bureau of Labor Statistics report.

According to the German News Agency, nearly half of the younger sets have at least a Bachelor's degree compared to just about one-third of older folks, the report by US Bureau of Labor Statistics economist Michelle Freeman showed. The report lays out how various age groups use their time to offer a snapshot of millennials versus other generations, based on 2017 data.
