I’m writing to let you know about a new report from Namechk.com looking at the U.S. states with the largest percentages of adult children still living with their parents. In 2001, the share of adults 25 and older living with their parents was just 3.9%. By 2019, that figure had risen to 7.3%. Experts predict this number is likely to climb even higher as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The share of adult children living with their parents varies widely by gender and race/ethnicity, as well as by location. Researchers ranked states according to the percentage of adults aged 25 and older still living at home with their parents.
The analysis found that in Connecticut, 7.1% of adults aged 25 and older live with their parents, compared to 7.3% of adults at the national level. Out of all U.S. states, Connecticut has the 19th highest percentage of adults still living with their parents.
Below you’ll find a summary of the analysis with data for Connecticut—please feel free to republish or use the findings in your own write-up. If you choose to use the analysis, please link to the original report, which includes a table with data on more than 250 metros and all 50 states: https://www.namechk.com/cities-with-the-most-adults-still-living-with-their-parents
