In U.S., 14% of Those Aged 24 to 34 Are Living With Parents

That’s actually considerably better than I would have guessed.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. This is fishier than clam chowder. “24 to 34?” Why those ages? How about 21 to 35? At what point did 24 become a meaningful age? Is that now the average age of a graduating college senior? I bet only about 5% of people aged 24 to 65 live with their parents. And on and on and on.

    BOTPRS. (New one. Quick will know what it means.)

    • I think they picked that because, as they mentioned elsewhere, they’re assuming that most 23 year olds are still in college, which I guess makes sense if you assume it takes a median six years to get a four year degree these days. But you’re probably right: BOTPRS.

      Also, um. Clams are fish now? Or do you make your clam chowder with big smelly chunks of smelt or something?
