Across the European Unions 28 member nations, nearly half (48.1%) of 18- to 34-year-olds were living with their parents in 2014 ….
Similar long-term trends have been observed elsewhere. Canadas most recent census, in 2011, found that 42.3% of adults ages 20 to 29 lived in their parents homes, up from 32.1% in 1991 and 26.9% in 1981. In Australia, about 29% of 18- to 34-year-olds were living with one or both of their parents (but without a partner or child) in 2011, up from 21% in 1976. And in Japan, theshare of 20- to 34-year-olds living with their parents grew from 29.5% in 1980 to 48.9% in 2012.
There are many other measurements which are the worst since the Great Depression …
