Just over half of young adult Americans live with their parents, an unprecedented proportion that is doubtless linked to the coronavirus but also reflects a deeper trend, researchers said Friday.
Between February and May, the share of 18-29 year-olds living with at least one parent rose from 47 percent to 52 percent and stayed at that level through July.
The rise was most marked among 18-24 year-olds, with 71 percent of them living with their parents in July, up from 63 percent in February.
Among ethnic groups, the breakdown showed that the trend was strongest inside the Hispanic community.
Even though the increase was pushed by the pandemic as young adults struggled to get by, it is part of a longer-term pattern, Pew says. （AFP）
