10. This article is close enough. Significant drop actually begins with Gen-X

 

In the mid-1970s, when baby boomers were coming of age, about a third of high school seniors agreed that "most people can be trusted."

That dropped to 18 percent in the early 1990s for Gen Xers and then, in 2012, to just 16 percent of Millennials.

The researchers also found that Millennials' approval of major institutions from Congress and corporations to the news media and educational and religious institutions dropped more sharply than other generations in the decade that followed the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
