Millennials are less likely to live with their parents in the West

Living in your parents’ basement? Don’t feel bad, the Pew Research Center says that’s the most common living arrangement for 18- to 34-year-olds in 2014. Which means for the first time ever, millennials are moving in with mom or dad more often than they are living with a spouse or partner.

Especially for hispanic young adults and men, according to the report. In 2014, 36 percent of hispanic young adults lived with their parents, which is the highest level in census history. And for young men, living with their parents has been the most common way to live since 2009.

But in this part of the country, it’s slightly less common to live with your folks. The census Mountain region, which includes Colorado and seven other states, is second to last when it comes to 18- to 34-year-olds living with their parents, Pew finds.

That’s a full 11 percentage points behind the Middle Atlantic region (New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania) and seven percentage points less than our neighbors in the Pacific region.
