More young adults are living at home with their parents (15 percent of family households had their own children, 18 and older, living at home; U.S. Census Bureau 2009). Although a small portion of the increase can be attributed to the economic downturn beginning in 2007, a closer look at census data shows that this trend is a continuation of a decades-old pattern (Elliott et al. 2011). Between 1960 and 2010, the proportion of men aged 18 to 24 who lived in their parents’ home increased from 52 to 59 percent. In 2010, 50 percent of women aged 18 to 24 lived at home with their parents, compared to 35 percent in 1960 (U.S. Census 2011f). Even among “older” young adults, aged 25 to 34, there was an increase from 10 percent of men living with their parents in 1970 to 16 percent in 2010. About 10 percent of women in this age group also lived with their parents in 2010, compared to 7 percent in 2010 (U.S. Census Bureau 2011f).
