More and more adults still live with their parents

The “Tanguy”, a symptom of the housing crisis? The number of young adults staying with their parents, mainly students, increased by 250,000 between 2013 and 2020, according to a study by the Abbé Pierre Foundation (FAP) published this Thursday, May 16. Around 4.92 million adults lived with their parents in 2020 compared to 4.67 million in 2013, the majority aged 18-24 (13.5%). Those aged 25-34 are also increasing (3.6%), while those over 35 are declining (-19.5%), for a total of 1.26 million people over 25.

“The fate of adults staying with their parents varies greatly. Some are satisfied with their housing conditions, especially when they are young,” but “when this situation drags on, it constitutes a major obstacle to their autonomy, particularly when they are no longer students, working, or even already living as a couple », Underlines the study. This phenomenon reflects above all "the greatest number of young people in France, the children of the baby boom of the year 2000 gradually arriving at adulthood", recognizes the FAP.

But it is also an “additional signal (...) of the seriousness of the youth housing crisis”, she continues, calling for “more proactive housing policies, in particular towards precarious young people”. In addition to 2.4 million students, 1.3 million young employees continue to live with their parents, which “may reflect salaries that are too low and rent levels that are too high or social housing that is too rare to be able to live together. ”, according to the Foundation. The number of unemployed people living with their parents decreased by 32.2%, to 588,000, due to the drop in youth unemployment over the period.

Note that young men are much more numerous (2.8 million) than women (2.1 million), a difference which is "not new", and which can be explained among other things "by forming a couple younger women, in relationships where the woman is on average younger than her partner,” notes the FAP. Around 600,000 (15%) people are also hosted by third parties (friends, cousins, etc.) or with their own children.
