This past year, the Pew Research Center published a fascinating report 
headed: “For First Time in Modern Era, Living With Parents Edges Out 
Other Living Arrangements for 18- to 34-Year-Olds.”  The study shows 
32.1% of these young adults living in their parent’s house.  The Pew 
study itself minimizes the problem, because it’s not really clear how 
many of the additional 14% listed as living alone are renting over the 
garage or a sleeping room down the street while still boarding at home. 
Too, a certain portion of the 31.6% living with partners of their own 
may also be sharing a life in similarly blurred realities.  And the 22% 
in “other living arrangements”  include people living with “such as a 
grandparent, in-law or sibling.”
