An Alarming Percentage Of Millennial Chicks Live At Home So I Hope You Like Having Sex In Parent’s Basements
According to recent Pew Research Center analysis of US Census Bureau data a staggering number of millennials (18 to 34) are refusing to move out of their parent’s houses, in fact the percentages of people aged 18 to 34 living with relatives is now the highest that it’s been since the 1940s.
So just how many millennials are living at home? For women it’s 36.4%. That’s over 1/3 of women aged 18 to 34 living at home with their parents. For guys the number’s even higher: 42.8% (just below the 1940 high of 47.5%). So while the percentage of dudes aged 18-34 is higher than that of their female counterparts it’s still less alarming, because it’s not an all-time high like it is with the ladies. So if you like having sex and are between the ages of 18 to 34 then I hope you’re cool with having sex on a couch in some parent’s basement.
The Pew Research Center analysis of US Census Bureau data showed that 36.4 percent of women ages 18 to 34 lived with family in 2014, mostly in the home of mother, father or both.
The number tops the record set in 1940, when 36.2 percent of young women lived with relatives, the analysis said. 1940 is the earliest year for comparable data.
Among young men, 42.8 percent were living with relatives last year, below the 1940 high of 47.5 percent.
“The result is a striking U-shaped curve for young women — and young men — indicating a return to the past, statistically speaking,” Pew said.
Young women are more likely now to be enrolled in college than in previous decades, with 27 percent of them college students last year, the report said. That compares with 5 percent in 1960.
Last year, 45 percent of young females in college, including those enrolled part time and at community college, lived with family. Among those not in college, a third lived with family.
Seriously, who in the fuck lives with their parents while going to college?!?! I’m sorry, but it is IMPOSSIBLE to have a genuine college experience when you’re living with your parents.
As for why this is all happening? Well, we know the answer to that: the Baby Boomers have completely fucked our generation from ever being able to have savings and make a killing in the workplace.
