It’s no one’s dream to live in their parents’ basement, but since the recession this has been a growing norm for young adults across the country. As Digg points out, a recent study from the Pew Research Center reports that in 2014, for the first time in 130 years, adults ages 18 to 34 were more likely to live with their parents than with a spouse or partner. They attribute it mainly to the postponement of marriage, fueled by social shifts as well as career and salary concerns. But this trend is not blanketed evenly across the country, and a new map from Metric Maps breaks down the trend by both state and county, which shows us that the Tri-State region has more millennials living at home than anywhere in the U.S.

Major metropolitan areas themselves, naturally more expensive, have average rates of those living parents, but the areas just surrounding them are quite high. In New York, for example, Manhattan is 10-15 percent less than average, but the Bronx is 10-15 more than average and Nassau County and Staten Island are 20 percent more than average. New Jersey is 40 percent above average–the most of any state–followed by New York at 35.7 percent and Connecticut at 35.3 percent.

On the flip side, states like Oregon, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Minnesota, and Iowa have virtually no counties with high percentages of young adults living at home–we’d like to know their secret!
