More than 1 in 4 young people living with parents

More than a quarter of Brits aged 20-34 were living with their parents last year.

Figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) show around 3.3m young people are living with their parents – a rise of nearly 700,000 since 1996.

In 2013, at age 20, 65% of men and 52% of women across the country were living at home. At age 34, 8% of men and 3% of women were living with their parents.

However, London has a smaller percentage of people living at home than much of the rest of the country, at 22%. This was probably due to the number of young people who come to the capital to work or study, the ONS suggested.
