Dating back to 1880, the most common living arrangement among young adults has been living with a romantic partner, whether a spouse or a significant other.
This type of arrangement peaked around 1960, when 62% of the nation’s 18- to 34-year-olds were living with a spouse or partner in their own household, and only one-in-five were living with their parents.
The remaining 22% lived in the home of another family member (such as a grandparent, in-law or sibling), a non-relative, or in group quarters (college dormitories fall into this category).
It’s worth noting that the overall share of young adults living with their parents was not at a record high in 2014.
The first is the postponement of, if not retreat from, marriage.
The median age of first marriage has risen steadily for decades.
Some 14% of young adults were heading up a household in which they lived alone, were a single parent or lived with one or more roommates.
For their part, young men (25%) are more likely than young women (19%) to be living in the home of another family member, a non-relative or in some type of group quarters.
A variety of factors contribute to the long-run increase in the share of young adults living with their parents.
While cohabitation has been on the rise, the overall share of young adults either married or living with an unmarried partner has substantially fallen since 1990.
In addition, trends in both employment status and wages have likely contributed to the growing share of young adults who are living in the home of their parent(s), and this is especially true of young men.
