So statistically speaking Millennials may not be purchasing new homes, but instead PEW Research Center released a new study just this week, that Millennials are Home AGAIN!

For the first time on record, Millennials are living with their parents more than ever! In fact, this living arrangement is now the MOST common for Millennials (18 to 34), according to new data by the Pew Research Center.

Nearly 1/3 of Millennials live with their parents; furthermore, it’s the first time that living at home, has outpaced living with a partner, for this age group since record-keeping began in 1880.

Y?! The sharp shift reflects the decline in marriage rates amongst Millennials, and is obviously amplified by the economic upheavals of the Great Recession, for which Millennials had to deal with.

A little Perspective… In 2000, only 23% of young adults were living with parents, but in 2014, the figure reached 32.1%
