    Census: More Americans 18-to-34 Now Live With Parents Than With Spouse
    By Terence P. Jeffrey | April 19, 2017 | 4:36 PM EDT

    (CNSNews.com) - 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.”
    The Number 1 living arrangement today for Americans in the 18-to-34 age bracket, according to the Census Bureau, is to reside without a spouse in their parents’ home.

    That is where you can now find 22.9 million 18-to-34 year olds—compared to the 19.9 million who are married and live with their spouse.
    In 1975, according to Census Bureau data, 31.9 million Americans in the 18-to-34 age bracket were married and lived with their spouse.
    Back then, this was the most common living arrangement for that age bracket.
    Also in 1975, 14.7 million in the 18-to-34 age bracket lived in their parents’ home; 6.1 million lived in an “other” arrangement (including with siblings, grandparents, other relatives, or unrelated roommates); 3.1 million lived alone, and 0.7 million cohabitated with an unmarried partner.
    In 2016, according to the Census Bureau, only 19.9 million were married and lived with a spouse—while 22.9 million lived in their parents’ home.
    Also in 2016, 15.6 million lived in an “other” arrangement. 9.2 million cohabitated with an unmarried partner, and 5.9 million lived alone.
    The Census Bureau counted college students living in a dormitory as living in their parents' home. By contrast, it counted someone as living with a spouse even if they and their spouse still lived with a parent.  The category of living with a spouse, the study said, included any “young adult who lives with a spouse, regardless of whether anyone else is present in the household (e.g., parents, roommates, other family members).”
    In 1975, when calculated as percentages according to the Census numbers, 57 percent of 18-to-34 year olds lived with a spouse, 26 percent lived in their parents’ home, 11 percent lived in an “other” arrangement, 5 percent lived alone, and 1 percent lived with an unmarried partner.
    In 2016, 31 percent lived in their parents’ home, 27 percent lived with their spouse, 21 percent lived in an “other” arrangement, 12 percent lived with an unmarried partner, and 8 percent lived alone.
    The rise in young adults living at home coincided with a decline in the economic status of young men.
    “More young men are falling to the bottom of the income ladder,” says the Census Bureau study. “In 1975, only 25 percent of men, aged 25 to 34, had incomes of less than $30,000 per year. By 2016, that share rose to 41 percent of young men (incomes for both years are in 2015 dollars).”
    “There are now more young women than young men with a college degree, whereas in 1975 educational attainment among young men outpaced that of women,” says the study.
    In the last decade, says the study, the pace of change in the living arrangements of young Americans has been rapid--but has not been uniform across the states and regions of the country.
    “Within the last 10 years, the breadth and speed of change in living arrangements have been tremendous,” it says. “In 2005, the majority of young people lived independently in their own household (either alone, with a spouse, or an unmarried partner), which was the predominant living arrangement in 35 states. By 2015—just a decade later—only six states had a majority of young people living independently.”
    With the exceptions of California and Mississippi, the Top Ten states with the highest percentages of 18-to-34 year olds living with their parents were concentrated along the Atlantic coast. (See chart below). They included: New Jersey (46.9%), Connecticut (41.6%), New York (40.6%) Maryland (38.5%), Florida (38.3%), California (38.1%), Rhode Island (37.1%), Pennsylvania (37.1%), Massachusetts (37.0%) and Mississippi (36.8%).
    With the exceptions of Washington and Oregon, the ten states with the lowest percentages of 18-to-34 year olds living with their parents were concentrated in the Midwest and Mountain states.
    These included North Dakota (14.1%), South Dakota (19.9%), Wyoming (20.9%), Nebraska (22.7%), Iowa (22.8%), Montana (24.1%), Colorado (24.6%), Kansas (26.0%), Washington (26.6%) and Oklahoma (26.7%), which tied with Oregon (26.7%).
    “Why are there geographical differences in young adult living arrangements?” the Census study asks. “For one, local labor and housing markets shape the ability of young people to find good jobs and affordable housing, which in turn affects whether and when they form their own households.”

  • The most liberal states with highest taxes, divorce, immortality have the most people living with Mom and Dad.  And most of these people are on welfare etc.  including men who refuse to work. 

    The other states are conservatives who have some religion about them. 

    The liberals are getting ready for next Presidential.  Pseudo refugees moslems have been relocated to conservative areas. Liberals paid people to move into ares. 
    To live with the Saints in Heaven is all bliss and glory....To live with the saints on Earth is just another story!  (unknown)

  • I have reasons to believe that many more Americans ages 18 to 34 and some much older are still living with Parents because
    there are no jobs.  94 million Americans of all ages are out of work and are willing and able to work and unable to find
    work.  However, recent immigrants legal and illegals are filling the jobs that should go to Americans because they are
    willing to work at a lower wage.
    Because of inflation, the cost of living has gone way up.  The minimum wage is just a starting wage for someone
    starting a job in the workforce.  My first wage was $2.00 a hour being in charge of a mail room of a small company.
    When I was in my 20's in the 1960's if I lost a job, I found an another job in less than two weeks. I did not get to
    collect unemployment insurance until I got laid off in the 2011. At that time I qualified to collect Social Security.
    Because after 99 weeks no one would hire me because of my age.
    The situation is blamed on the globalists and those seeking a one world government.  Who is behind the globalism
    are the very wealthy.  They lie and deceive through the use of the mass media.  The younger generation is
    thoroughly brainwashed because of the leftist control of the schools, colleges, universities.  Many churches
    pulpits are controlled. TV is used as a source of mind control.

  • And if they are not married why shouldn't they live with family?  I'm a big supporter of multi-generational households.

    Be careful about generalizations.  I know a fair number of people in this age group, some even older who live with their parents because the only other choice is to go on welfare.  Many of these are morally decent folks who listened to their elders, went to college, got their degree, only to find themselves deep in debt, the promised "good paying jobs" shipped overseas or become obsolete.  Instead, they've taken low wage entry level positions and put their lives on hold; held hostage by debt.  Many work at multiple part time jobs completely unrelated to their degree; jobs they could have gotten while still in high school.  
    A fair number of those I know are traditional Catholics.  Some are even married with children, both parents working while grandma watches and home schools the children.  
    A priest once gave a conference in which he said that a Catholic had no business dating, much less marrying until he could provide a house, not a rental, and a stable job with wages sufficient to enable his wife to stay home.  A single Catholic woman should not date a man who could not already provide, or was set up to provide these things in the near future.  
    I know he meant well, but if Catholics had to meet his standard, there would few to none getting married and no babies.  
    IMO, American Catholics hold very un-Catholic views of family life.  The nuclear family is an Amercanist notion, not at all Catholic.  Multi-generational homes were the norm until after WW II.  
    Sure, there are lazy bums living in their parents' basement, contributing nothing to the household, but in those cases, the parents are as much to blame as the overgrown children for putting up with it.
