OUR TIME DAILY TRANSLATION
We've heard you say it many times: "Politics is like a foreign language." Well, we agree.
Each week, we summarize, simplify, and interpret different major news stories and how they affect our generation. We'll give you our take, and you can decide for yourself.
In 1980, 32% of Americans aged 20-24 lived at home with their parents. Today that number has risen to over 43%.
In 2007-2009, 25% of young adults aged 20 to 34 lived with their parents.
Young adults with graduate degrees have the lowest rate of living at home- 9%.
WHY WE CARE
The main trends that lead to young adults living with their parents are financial insecurity and student loan debt.
Americans across the geographical, racial, and economic spectrum are being affected, which means millions of young Americans are delaying the beginning of their independent adult lives.
