NIT – Marital status, educational attainment, and job status are the biggest predictors as to whether a person will remain living at home with parents, according to a new poll.
According to Gallup, only 14% of adults between the ages of 24 and 34 reported living at home in the US. By contrast, roughly half of 18 to 23-year-olds, many of whom are still finishing their education, are currently living at home. For all adults under the age of 35, 29% reported they still live at home with mom and dad.
The results are based on Gallup Daily tracking interviews conducted from Aug. 7 through Dec. 29, 2013, in which adults younger than 35 were asked about their current living arrangements.
Gallup said that people who live at home are much less likely to be married; are less likely to be working full time and more likely to be unemployed or underemployed; and are less likely to have graduated from college.
