Millennials More Likely to Live with Parents than Partners

Pew Research Center

According to a new study by the Pew Research Center, young adults between the ages of 18-to-34 are more likely to live with their parents than any other living arrangement. This includes living by themselves, a roommate, or with a romantic partner.

The study found that 32.1% of young adults lived with their parents, while 31.6% of young adults were married or cohabitating and 14% were living alone or as single parents. Young adults have not been more likely to live with their parents than with a romantic partner since 1880.

The researchers argue that this shift in living arrangements is a result of the declining rates of marriage and male employment.
