U.S. Census: Nearly 1/3 Of Young American Adults Live With Their Parents

For the first time, more young adults are living with their parents than with a spouse.

A new study released Wednesday by the U.S. Census Bureau indicated that 31 percent of 18-to-34-year-olds are still under their parents roof, while 27 percent are sharing a home with a spouse.

Whereas some 26 percent of young adults still lived at home in 2005, census numbers show that, by 2015, that number had risen to just over 34 percent, a more than 30 percent jump in a single decade.

New Jersey has the most millennials still sharing an address with Mommy and Daddy, clocking in at almost 47 percent.

Florida ranked fifth-highest in the nation at just over 38 percent.
