The Intergenerational Foundation took ten of the indicators from the now well-established Intergenerational Fairness Index to see how they changed during the period from 2005 until the most recent data became available. The analysis shows conclusively that the position of young people got significantly worse over this period, particularly since the beginning of the deepest recession since the 1930s in 2008.
