The growing number of twentysomethings who move back home

More and more adult children are finding themselves moving back home at some point. Recent data from the 2011 census shows that almost 60 per cent of 20- to 24-year-olds live at home and about 25 per cent of 25- to 29-year-olds did the same. Click on each census district in the map below to how many twentysomethings in your area lived at home last year.

(Note: Areas that are darker purple indicate a higher percentage of young people living at home.)
