Mapping the Trend: How Many Young Adults are Living with Parents in Your Metro Area?

FRIDAY, MAR 03, 2023

More than three-quarters of a million Americans between the ages of 18 and 34 moved out of their parents’ homes between 2019 and 2021, according to a Social Explorer analysis of American Community Survey data. Slightly more than 33 percent of young adults lived with their parents in 2021, a 0.9 percent decrease from the 2019 figure.

The Pendleton, Ore., micropolitan area registered the greatest increase in the percentage of young adults living with their parents. In 2019, only 16.8 percent of 18- to 34-year-olds in the northern Oregon community lived with their parents; two years later, the figure had climbed to 38.7 percent. The largest decline was registered in The Villages, Fla., one of the nation’s fastest-growing (and oldest) metros, where the percentage of young adults living with parents fell from 69.5 percent in 2019 to 18.1 percent in 2021.
