45 percent of recent college grads are living with their parents2/28/2013
In other depressing news about millennials, Pew Research Center economist Richard Fry recently calculated exactly how many recent college grads are living back at home these days using the most recent census data. Spoiler Alert: The numbers aren’t pretty. In 2011, 45 percent of recent graduates (meaning those aged 18-24) were still living with their parents. That's 45 percent higher than it was a decade ago, when only 31 percent of recent grads found themselves back at home. Like we said, it’s not pretty. [Source]
