Gen Z Vox Pop Series

Gen Z Identity and Mindset

Gen Z Vox Pop

In recent years, Gen Z has been a growing topic of interest among researchers and marketers trying to decode the next generation of consumers. The good thing is, a lot has been said and written about Gen Z. The bad thing is well… a lot has been said and written about Gen Z. And, this means that navigating the Gen Z headlines to separate the truth from the stereotype has become increasingly challenging.

Having said that, we decided to decode this generation by going directly to the source - no one knows Gen Z more than Gen Z-ers themselves.

Ipsos and TikTok have partnered up to launch the Gen Z Vox Pop series, a unique research initiative that sources insights about Gen Z by Gen Z. The series will uncover first-hand human insights across multiple volumes, each unpacking a key aspect of the vast Gen Z universe.

This is the first of the 3-part series which focusses on a first look at our Gen Z consumer at a foundational level – Who are they? What is their mindset? This understanding will help lay the groundwork as we explore other aspects of Gen Z and their behaviors in that context throughout subsequent volumes – for eg: shopping /e-commerce, perceptions of sale moments, etc.
