Today's Useful Data: The Economics and Demographics of Young Adulthood


What's going on with today's young adults? How does the situation of Millennials compare with that experienced by earlier generations? The Census is out with a very detailed report on all this which is chock full of amazing and useful (if perhaps not so uplifting) facts. Here's just one: 
In 2005, the majority of young adults lived independently in their own household, which was the predominant living arrangement in 35 states. A decade later, by 2015, the number of states where the majority of young people lived independently fell to just six. Of the top five states where the most young adults lived independently in 2015, all were in Midwest and Plains states.
