NJ Leads The U.S. In Young Adults Living With Parents


The date from the 2017 U.S. Census shows that forty-seven percent of New Jerseyans aged 18 to 34 still live at home with their parents!

It's the highest in all of the 50 states and the reason for this is the rising student debt, housing costs, and other expenses.

The highest concentrations of young adults living at home are in Hunterdon, Sussex, Monmouth, Passaic, and Somerset counties, the analysis found.

Rhode Island and New York at the next in line with 41 percent each. Typical rent in New Jersey was $1,284 last year which ranked 5th in the nation. 

In North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa and Wyoming, housing costs are cheaper which is the reason for 15 percent to 23 percent of 18-to-34-year-olds living with their parents.
