Census: More Americans 18-to-34 Now Live With Parents Than With Spouse

Via Billy

Four decades ago, in the mid-1970s, young American adults--in the 18-to-34 age bracket--were far more likely to be married and living with a spouse than living in their parents’ home.

But that is no longer the case, according to a new study by the U.S. Census Bureau.

“There are now more young people living with their parents than in any other arrangement,” says the Census Bureau study.

“What is more,” says the study, “almost 9 in 10 young people who were living in their parents’ home a year ago are still living there today, making it the most stable living arrangement.”

  1. Student loan debts and the high cost of purchasing a stick built home I'm sure are factors why this is occurring. I also suspect that some parents appreciate having at least one of their kids at home to do 'the heavy lifting' when needed.

    1. Their stupidity for student loans (Two years of college gets you a Walmart career these days)and one doesn't have to buy a house. Mind boggling to me.

  2. Gives new meaning to child proofing your house.
