Number of 25-29 Year Olds Still Living at Home Hits 75-Year High

A new study from the Pew Research Center has found the number of 25-29 year-olds who live with either their parents or grandparents is at in its highest in 75 years.

The most recent data (from 2016), found “a record 64 million Americans live in multigenerational households.” That means one-in-five Americans live in what Pew calls a “multigenerational household.” In fact, as QZ notes, at 33%, it’s three times as high as it was in 1970.

Though there a lot of economic and social factors at play with the trend, it is notable that the average age for getting married is steadily rising and that millennials leaving college are often saddled with record amounts of student loan debt.
