Dating back to 1880, the most common living arrangement among young adults has been living with a romantic partner, whether a spouse or a significant other.This type of arrangement peaked around 1960, when 62% of the nation’s 18- to 34-year-olds were living with a spouse or partner in their own household, and only one-in-five were living with their parents.Employed young men are much less likely to live at home than young men without a job, and employment among young men has fallen significantly in recent decades.

This arrangement peaked around 1940, when about 35% of the nation’s 18- to 34-year-olds lived with mom and/or dad (compared with 32% in 2014).

What has changed, instead, is the relative share adopting different ways of living in early adulthood, with the decline of romantic coupling pushing living at home to the top of a much less uniform list of living arrangements.

By 2014, 31.6% of young adults were living with a spouse or partner in their own household, below the share living in the home of their parent(s) (32.1%).

Some 14% of young adults were heading up a household in which they lived alone, were a single parent or lived with one or more roommates.

Among young adults, living arrangements differ significantly by gender.

For men ages 18 to 34, living at home with mom and/or dad has been the dominant living arrangement since 2009.
