More 18-34 Year Olds Live at Home Than Ever Before

This Pew study highlights the shifting demographic impacts of student debt, low wages, and housing unaffordability on the plans of millennials. In 1960, 62% of 18-34 year olds were living with a spouse/partner in their own household; now that percentage has been halved to 31.2%. And over 32% of this age group now resides at home, further putting off relationships and home ownership.
