It’s no secret that the coronavirus outbreak has pushed millions of Americans, especially young adults, to move in with family members. According to a new Pew Research Center analysis of monthly Census Bureau data, the current share of 18- to 29-year-olds living with their parents is at 52%. That’s over half of young adults 18-29 now living with their parents, surpassing the previous peak during the Great Depression era of the 1930’s when 48% of young adults lived with their parents. I wonder what percentage of that 52% is helping their parents pay the bills? Here’s more from Pew Research.
