The Great Recession sent many young adults back to live with Mom and Dad. Now some parents are turning the tables.
The percentage of parents who have moved in with their kids has doubled over the last two decades, according to Pew Research. In 1995, 7 percent of adults who lived in someone else’s home were parents of the head of the household. Today, that figure is 14 percent.
Overall, about 1 in 3 Americans (31.9 percent) live in someone else’s home. That’s up from 28.8 percent in 1995.
