Survey shows many adults are worried over their personal data being shared with the government, mostly the people from Generation Z

Generation Z, also known as Zoomers is an age bracket that includes people that are born between the year 1997 and 2012. They are said to be most supportive, diverse and challenging than any other generations. Some even say that they are the youngest social justice warriors who always raise their voices against something wrong. Apart from these there are other generations as well. We have the Baby Bloomers which includes people born in 1946 to 1964, Generation X that includes people born between the years of 1965 and 1980 and finally the Millennials that have people born between 1981 and 1996.

Each of these generations includes a group of people that are born and raised in different events of time; each of these groups is different from the other and offer great diversity and a chance to see the type of development in human beings that has occurred over the years.

According to the Morning Consult Survey conducted in the December of last year, that Atlas VPN visually represented in the data, about 50% of the people born in Gen Z don’t really feel comfortable with sharing their location with the government. Even though Generation Z and Baby Boomers generation are the ones with the largest age gap, this concern was also followed by them regarding their personal data being shared. The survey interviewed about 2,200 adults of US that were aged 18 years or older, about their opinions on the government knowing about their every whereabouts.

The data showed that 15% of the people born in Gen Z were feeling safe around the fact that their data was shared by the government but about 50% of the adults from Gen Z do not really feel comfortable with this, it also includes 6% of the people from the same era who feel very comfortable with this. Coming to the Baby Boomers generation, about 54% are highly doubtful about them sharing their location, data and everything else while 6% feel safe and secure and about 17% feel completely safe. Most of the people from Millennials and Generation X are comfortable with their private information being shared with the government.

However, all of these above mentioned generations are comfortable with their information being tracked for Coronavirus.

As mentioned, every generation is brought up in different ways and each one of these individuals has its own separate set of opinions. These generations have separate economic and historical background and have different images of the world around them.
