(STUDY FINDS) -- NEW YORK — If you feel like millennials are a strange breed that seem like they just don’t mesh with most people your city, the feeling is apparently mutual. A recent survey found that nearly two out of three millennials said they didn’t feel they belonged in the communities they lived in.
The researchers, commissioned by the community investment platform CNote, compared survey responses of 1,000 millennials with that of 1,000 non-millennials. Sixty-four percent of the millennial participants agreed they felt disconnected from their community.
