Why are young adults being called the "Clipped Wing Generation?

What is the average price for a starting apartment in your city? Is that considered expensive? Do you rent or own your home?
If you are not living at home, when did you move out from your family home? Why? Was your first apartment expensive? Do you live in the center of town, or in a suburb? Why did you choose to live in this area? Are there adequate public services? Schools, shops, and cultural activities? How long do you plan to stay at your present residence?
