3.4m young adults still live with their parents

Written by: Danielle Levy
Research conducted by think tank Civitas has shown a marked increase in the number of young adults living with their parents.

Expensive rents and higher house prices help to explain why close to one million more young adults continue to live with their parents compared to 19 years ago.

According to Civitas’s research, the proportion of 20 to 34-year-olds living with parents has risen from 19% in 1998 to 26% in 2017. According to the think tank’s figures, this equates to an additional 900,000 adults and brings the total to 3.4m.

Looking specifically at those aged 23, around 49% continued to live with parents in 2017, up from 37% in 1998.

Among 23-year-olds the increase recorded was even steeper, from 37 per cent to 49 per cent across the same period.
