New research: Boomerang adult kids in parental homes
May 06, 2013
Bowling Green State University’s National Center for Family and Marriage Research has a new research brief called "Young Adults in the Parental Home and the Great Recession."
The profile uses 2006 and 2011 American Community Survey one-year estimates to examine the unemployment rate and subsequent median earnings of young adults in the labor force pre- and post- The Great Recession. It also compares young adults co-residing with at least one parent with those who are living independently, and provides insights into motivations for co-residing with parents.
"Using data from the 2006 and 2011 American Community Survey 1-year estimates, this profile examines the unemployment rate and subsequent median earnings of young adults in the labor force pre and post The Great Recession. Comparisons are made between young adults coresiding with at least one parent and those who were not living with a parent (i.e., living independently). In addition, data from the Toledo Adolescent Research Study (TARS) provide new insights into young adults’ motivations for co-residing with parents."
