Vermont has a generation gap. Young adults in their 20s are part of the largest generation ever in America.

But Vermonters ages 20 to 34 continue to leave the state. And a low birth rate means they're not being replaced.

Politicians have debated for years the significance, but most agree the trend is cause for concern about the economic and cultural well-being of the state.

Vermont Edition delves into this trend and how it affects the economic and cultural well-being of the state in the series "Generation Gap."

The Generation Gap Project is made possible by the VPR Journalism Fund.
