A 2017 Deloitte survey based on the views of almost 8,000 millennials, defined as people born after 1982, across 30 countries worldwide reveals that ‘mature economies’ show less optimism than so-called ‘emerging markets’. 48% of millennials in emerging markets foresee improvements in the social and political situations while the proportion in mature economies is about half that figure, a mere 25%, the Deloitte report reads.

A survey by Česká spořitelna and Kantar Agency published on April 11, 2018 examined the attitudes of a sample of 1,036 Czechs between 18 and 28 years of age.

11% of Czech millennials have a university degree and 34% have finished their studies with a leaving exam.

According to the survey, most millennials (51%) have no clear idea about their future career, but 84% of them believe that everyone is the architect of his or her destiny.

Czech millennials are also an optimistic generation, with 83% of them looking forward to the future, compared to 69% of Czechs above 30 years old.

The most important thing for these young people is, besides family and health, finding work that they will enjoy (53%). As for the optimal amount of savings to have at hand, two or three months’ salary was the most common response (28%).

Traveling is an important priority for many millennials. However, Czech millennials do not want to leave the country for a long time, and most of them do not want to move from the place where they live (82%).
