    A Quarter of Millennials Who Live at Home Don’t Work — or Study
    Half are white, and most are men, the Census Bureau reports.

    Are Millennials Financially Screwed?

    A life of leisure, free of bosses and bills, sure sounds like the dream — and it turns out millions of millennials are living it. But don't congratulate them yet. They're doing it under their parents' roof and not necessarily by choice.

    About a third of 18- to 34-year-olds in the U.S. live at home, the Census Bureau reported on Wednesday. That includes college dormitories. Among 25- to 34-year-olds living at home, one in four is neither enrolled in school nor working. That's 2.2 million people, a small percentage of the nation's more than 70 million millennials1 but a striking figure nonetheless.

    More 18- to-34-year-olds live with a parent than with a spouse, according to the report, The Changing Economics and Demographics of Young Adulthood: 1975–2016 (pdf). That's a major shift from the 1970s, when young people were more than twice as likely to live with a spouse. Young adults today are also likelier to be enrolled in college or graduate school than their counterparts in the '70s.

    Most of those who live at home but neither work nor study have a high school diploma or less, and about a fifth have a child. Half are white, and the majority are male. About a quarter have a disability 2 .

    "Almost 9 in 10 young people who were living in their parents’ home a year ago are still living there today, making it the most stable living arrangement for young adults," the report said. "In 2005, the majority of young people lived independently in their own household (either alone, with a spouse, or an unmarried partner), which was the predominant living arrangement in 35 states. By 2015—just a decade later—only six states had a majority of young people living independently."

    Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.

    Worthless diplomas, lack of ambition, unwillingness to move for work is at the core of this. the amount of young people I talk to that just plain give up in highschool is absolutely astounding.

    There are so many people out there walking around with such a hard man "Fuck it" attitude because it makes them look so carefree and cool and a master of yourself. When in reality they are some of the most lazy, weak insecure people around. If not the most.

    Thanks, mom, for recognizing I'm on some autism spectrum and for erring on the side of gluten sensitivity. God forbid anything less than handcrafted, artisanal foods ever touch your precious boy's lips. Off to go be offended by something, be home later.

    Love,

    I'd like to see more of a narrow breakdown when it comes to that 18-34 age breakdown. Obviously, there's a huge difference between an 18-20 year old living at home or even without a job than a 30-34 year old.

    It's insane. I moved out at 17 and became a homeowner three years ago at 27 with two damn kids. Should I be proud of that or something? I was honestly disappointed I couldn't get there by 25. Money and other material objects though mean absolutely fucking nothing to me next to the pursuit of knowledge and physical perfection.

    :rofl :lol:

    Probably glossed over that bit tbf. :yep

    You old fucks need to die already and free up some of them good jerbs.

    Edit, retiring is also acceptable, just stay home no one wants your old ass driving slow as shit all day.

    Honestly the amount of old bastards that sit around and do nothing at some jobs is mind boggling. They're actually pretty big crybabies too :lol: it's hilarious.

    Tell me about it. I work IT and old guys put in tickets just to complain about random shit.

    There's been a few times where I have to interrupt them to let them know that if there isn't shit that needs to be fixed they need to fuck off so I can get back to work.
