Boomerangers, Kippers and Adultescents: 18-34-year-olds who Live with their Parents in Great Britain

Abstract : Today in Great Britain more than half of young people aged 18 to 24 live with their parents.1 As for 25 to 35 year-olds, the figure is around 14%. Thus, approximately 6.8 million over-18s live in their parents’ house, and two million of these are over 30. Some have never left home; others left home and then returned to the family dwelling at a later date. In this way, a greater proportion of young people are living with their parents than a generation ago. This phenomenon is having profound economic and social effects within families. Why are so many young people living with their parents in Great Britain and what are the outcomes? In this article we will first describe this current housing trend before examining some of its numerous causes and consequences. We will finish with a few comments on the future.
