(CNSNews.com) – A Pew Research Center analysis released Tuesday showed that for the first time since 1880 in the United States, living with parents is the most common arrangement for 18-34 year-olds.

According to the most recent data from 2014, 31.6 percent of young adults were living with a spouse or partner in their own household and 32.1 percent were living in their parent’s home.

There is also a gender divide with significantly more young men living with their parents than young women.

Thirty-five percent of women live with a spouse or romantic partner, and just 29 percent live in their parents’ home compared to 28 percent of men living with a spouse or romantic partner and 35 percent living with parents.

Pew noted that “for men ages 18 to 34, living at home with mom and/or dad has been the dominant living arrangement since 2009” while “young women are on the cusp of crossing over this threshold: They are still more likely to be living with a spouse or romantic partner.”
